Not only are we known as one of the best restaurants in Ybor , but we’re also a premier wine bar in Ybor and the Tampa area.
We offer the largest menu of the best Sicilian wine, with nearly 200 Sicilian-made wines. No other restaurant in Tampa Bay offers this selection. In fact, no other restaurant in the United States serves the volume of quality Sicilian wines that Casa Santo Stefano offers.
The wineries we source from were hand-selected by owner Richard Gonzmart, after he visited the vineyards in Sicily—where fields of dried lava produce some of the most terroir-driven flavors in the world.
Whether you enjoy Sicilian wines by the glass or the bottle, your server can suggest a wine or bottle of sparkling Prosecco to pair with your lunch or dinner.
As we like to say, “Amici e vino sono meglio vecchie.” (Friends and wine are better old.)
Drinking a glass (or bottle) of wine at Casa Santo Stefano is an experience. Sit next to the chef at our hand-painted volcanic rock counters and order our famous Tampa-Sicilian recipes from 1925 that pair perfectly with our wine selections.
Our interior design offers a unique showcase of art and craftsmanship, with custom imported elements around every corner.
Have you had a glass of Sicilian wine at Santo’s Drinkeria yet? Santo’s Drinkeria is our rooftop bar, overlooking historic Ybor City. The rooftop stretches 3,500 square feet with expanding umbrellas, gas fire pits and stringed lights for an intimate, cozy vibe.
Choose from a variety of wines, including:
- Bianco – white wines
- Carricante – an ancient white wine grape variety from eastern Sicily
- Rosato – rosé wines
- Spumanti – sparkling wines
- Rosso – red wines
- Nerello Mascalese wine – a dark-skinned grape variety that grows on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily
If you’re hungry, we have the perfect dishes to pair with your glass of wine. Eat at our hand-painted, colorful tabletops and countertops imported from Caltagirone, Sicily.
Our 20-foot steel grill anchors the open kitchen, where you can watch meals (such as the Mediterranean sea bass, swordfish, dry-aged pork chops and porterhouse steaks cooked over wild Florida cherry wood) as you sip from your glass.
Our team will suggest the perfect glass of wine to pair with your meal, or the perfect meal to pair with your wine of choice.
