Our Story

About Café Largo

Meet Chef Linus & Yvonne, the new owners of Café Largo! The restaurant is open Wednesday through Saturday, serving the finest European cuisine. We've been overwhelmed with the warm embrace of the community, we recommend a reservation so we can have a special table waiting just for you!

Established in 1986 and located in the Tampa/St Petersburg area near the beautiful Belleair Bluff’s neighborhood, Café Largo is nested at the end of a quiet courtyard in the Galleria Plaza. You will be greeted by the Chef's lovely wife, Yvonne Rickenbach, into our intimate dining room that creates a perfect atmosphere for a romantic night on the town, a quiet evening with friends, or even an elegant family celebration.
Chef Linus Rickenbach specializes in a revival of classic French cuisine with a light touch in tradition of the Grande Brigade. Using only the freshest ingredients, everything we serve – from breads and soups through entrees and desserts - is prepared locally in our kitchen. Café Largo is truly a boulangerie, a bistro, a café, a fine dining restaurant, and even a patisserie in one.
In 2013 a casual dining space "La Buvette" was added to accommodate small private parties. Chef Linus and Yvonne are updating this menu and will be offering an exciting new refreshment bar! Special wine tastings and events will be posted on our social media as well as our website. Please follow us and share with your friends and family.
