Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel


Gabriella's Bistro, our signature tapas restaurant and bar, serves delicious, Mediterranean-style food and craft cocktails. Just a short ride from the airport, Gabriella's is located near Ybor City, Tampa's premier destination for boutique bars and restaurants.

Our concept centers on the love story of Sergio and Gabriella and the private oasis of their Tampa dream home. The heart of the mansion was a huge courtyard and fountain designed to be seen from everywhere in the home. Filled with lush vegetation the courtyard was ideal for parties or quiet moments.
