We stopped for dinner after reading good reviews. Their happy hour was the best part. We were both disappointed in the sauce, not what we expected. We both walked out saying we would rate it a 5 out of 10. Probably not returning.

I am very sorry to see that you were disappointed. We're curious as to what sauce displeased you. The majority of our customers love our Marinara so much that we sell it to-go. We strive to be at the top of our game so any more info would be appreciated. You could contact us at info@opheliaspastahouse.net if you wish to. More

I just went out for a family dinner, and i must say the food and service was spectacular! From the lobster to the caesar salad to the key lime pie made from scratch, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was very soothing and intimate. I am told that a lady named "Kelly" made our key lime pie and brownie... More

Absolutely great 'family run' (i.e., non chain restaurant). Friends just introduced us to this super secret. Worth a trip from Sarasota or Bradenton, 20+ miles away... Extensive menu, great wine values, and a generous happy hour too... A real keeper.

Great little spot in a Publix Grocery Store strip. The food is always good, and the wine prices are fantastic. A great happy hour!

Your dog is welcomed and will feel at home at this unique pet-friendly restaurant. Our dog enjoys sitting next to us in a booth, while we enjoy a delicious meal. Plenty of water and treats for your pet, too. Good service, good food, at a good price, too! Bring your doggie along and everyone will be happy with the atmosphere... More

I've only eaten there a couple of time, but the restaurant is nice and the food is outstanding. They have a small outdoor patio for those who want to bring their pets.

We are very sorry that your recent experience was not as good as your last. Since reading your comments, the staff has been reminded of the importance of good service. It may have been busy, but that's no excuse to be kept waiting, especially without your complimentary cocktails! We do hope that you haven't given up on us as we... More
