Umm...they gotta get their act together.

We went for dinner. What we ordered was not what was delivered. Kinda disappointing to choose a menu item based on its ingredient description, then not get what you wanted. We had to make a few requests for change. Would have thought the restaurant would have brought a free dessert or discounted... read more

Wandered into this restaurant and left becoming a regular. Brian our waiter offered super shareable food ideas and lovely meeting the Chef Andrea from Italy. Bar seating and dining room seating as well as Outside dining. Live piano music was lovely. Pizza was super and the homemade desserts were awesome

Great service, Excellent Italian food with good martinis. Defiantly worth your time if you're looking for good Italian food! The bolognese lasagna was great as well as the linguini primavera.

Walked here after going to movie. Party of 6 all adults. We were seated right away. Server was efficient, friendly, and helpful. Drinks were good and food was average Italian for the Sarasota area. They have outside dinning and a full bar. Sauce was a little bland and they have changed the table bread which is not that good now.... More

Avoid this place if you are looking for an Italian Trattoria. The food is not very good. After sampling the meatball appetizer which was tasteless, I went for the burger. A rare burger turned into a small charred mess. The advertised home-made focaccia roll turned into a stale store bought bun. The salads weren't very good either.

I don't know why people like this place... Must be the full bar, its certainly not the food. I keep trying, but have yet to find anything edible.

On a recent evening out with the wife we stopped here a bite to eat and a cold beverage. We have been here several times and find that the food is OK and reasonably priced. The PIZZA is best. Happy hour till 7pm and the entertainment, Joe, is terrific. He plays Wednesday to Saturday from 6-10 and is delightful to... More

The food is fine. I like the pizza the best. We ate there several times now. I think they have a problem with staff. It takes a while to order and it takes a while to get your drinks so its a place we go if we are not in a hurry and already in the area. We also found... More

We went with family. Three children and six adults. It was first Friday so streets were very busy and closed off due to an event. Parked off site in an insurance parking lot and walked over. Expected a long wait but were happy to get a table outside near all the action. We had pizza and pasta. The kids all... More

After reading mixed reviews, we decided to take a chance and try Trattoria. Wow are we glad that we did! Being a Thursday evening around 6:30 the restaurant was not very busy. We were greeted at the door by a very pleasant young lady and were seated immediately. From the minute we were seated, our server Doug was attentive and... More
