CDB's has one of the best pizza's in Florida.. It upsets me to read all of the comments below from one time only customers. It's obvious that they didn't have a great first experience and that really stinks.. but take it from someone who

When we looked this place up online it said that reservations were recommended though I don't know why. So we made reservations (I waited three minutes on hold.) We showed up a few minutes early and ended up waiting ten minutes for a seat

This was our first and last time going to CDB Italian Restaurant.

We ordered fried mozzarella sticks as an appetizer. They had no taste to them at all. It was obvious they were just out of the freezer into the fryer.

The salad we had turned out to be the highlight of the who meal.

Entrees we ordered were Chicken Marsala and Seafood Sampler (shrimp, scallops and crabmeat with choice of pasta).

The Chicken Marsala average at best. The Seafood Sample did not contain crabmeat, but imitation crabmeat. That is not being honest with the customer.
I chose white sauce over red and the sauce was extremely watery.

The cooks were Mexicans and Japanese so what would make me think this place would serve great Italian food.

There are far better Italian food restaurants in the Tampa Bay area than this place.

To add insult to injury the waitress didn't deduct the certificate I had from the bill, I had to tell her she forgot to do it. It's not like the place was really busy as she had only one other table she was waitressing.

Pros: Salad that comes with the dinner.

Cons: Average food at best. Waitress didn't deduct certificate

After joining friends for a lunch prior to attneding the Bold/Fresh meeting at the Superbowl on the USF campus. , I decided to take my wife and daughter to try the Greek salad and great pizza in the future.
This weekend, I was able to take them to try Cdb's and it was an exceptional treat. Curtis our waiter was friendly and very helpful in offering us a special large salad and pizza for a special price. The salad was excellent and the pizza was tpped with extra cheese and sausage and the bottom layer was covered with pepperoni. We took a doggie bag of salad and half or the pizza for another meal at home. I first had pizza in Chicago in the late 1940's, and the Cdb pizza surpasses any pizza I have evr eaten. Cdb is where we will eat pizza again and again. Try it you will like it.

A local too me here one evening. By the time our dinner was over even she was seemingly disappointed in the place. The air was too cold in the place making it uncomfortable. The food was just ok and their bread seemed like it was baked earlier in the day and had already gone stale. The server couldn't get it through his head that my friend didn't want to be addressed as "Hon".

This is by far the best place in the Tampa area for subs. Their overall for is excellent, the the service is good. The best by far is the "Hard Hat Special". DEFINITELY a MAN'S sandwich. Bring your appetite. Be sure to get one to go too.

I had the chance to stop by CDB's the other day for dinner. Wow! What a great menu! The food was so TASTY and the portions so BIG!! I would highly recommend this place. I had to take home several doggy-bags...and It was just as good the next day. Check it out sometime.

Pros: BIG PORTIONS

CDBs is an old North Tampa tradition. The new owner has kept the old menu, recipes, and huge portion sizes. I believe the quality is as good as CDB was at the height of its heyday. I was surprised to discover this. I'll definitely be returning for one of their fantastic diet delight salads!

Ok, we normally eat at a different restaurant and I have decided to try to find a less expensive place because a good pie doesn't need to be $20. The price was almost as high but I was eager to try this unknown place hoping that the pizza was great. Well..... They burned the cheese and the counterperson said they could make a new pizza if I wanted (as well they should have). Well, they took the pizza into the back and put new cheese over the old burned cheese to hide it. I got home, opened the box and peeled the top layer of cheese back only to find the burnt cheese underneath. I was shocked and still can hardly believe they would do that. I returned with the pie, gave the pizza back and a $5 gift certificate they had given me for having to wait for a new pizza. I got a refund, and declined a "free" pizza from the management. That is just very poor business practice and it cost them any future business of mine. Be warned, my advice is just to STAY AWAY.
