This has to be the only place in Sarasota where you can't get separate checks. And you get to argue w the owner's wife about it! We went to a party and sat at a table w 3 other couples whom we didn't know well and wanted our own check. The waitress's excuse was they don't have a computer. After... More

Use your GPS to find this intimate Italian restaurant tucked away off the main road; we have passed by hundreds of times and didn't realize it existed. The owner welcomed us warmly, even without reservations, although reserving is a good idea. The pasta fagioli was delicious, as were all the dishes we tried. My favorite was a pasta dish with...

This gem is hidden in the Gulf Gate area but you definitely have to find it! The food is amazing! Made just for you, fresh and in a timely manner. The ambience is great and the Solorzano family will make you feel at home and like a long time friend. This is the best Italian dinner I have had in... More

Our meal was lovely. I had veal, it was tender and full of flavor. My husband had Chicken Parmesan and the serving size was generous and delicious. The lady who greeted us at the door was funny and kind. Frankie also assisted us with the menu and ordering our wine (Barbarossa). At the end of our meal we had a... More

We loved the pizza - authentic NY/NJ style in a small store front in Siesta Key, FL. There were a few tables inside and a few more outside, but you can also get delivery or carryout. We hit it on a busy delivery night, so they were out of garlic knots and a salad would have taken 1/2 hour, so... More

Frankie goes out of her way to make any dish any way you want it. She makes you feel like family and is there if anything is needed. I would recommend making a reservation to have a truly memorable meal.

I just happened to stumble onto this cute little restaurant by chance. I wanted to try some of the establishments in the Gulf Gate area and it caught my eye. I might add that the atmosphere was truly enjoyable and the food top notch. Service was provided by the owners wife, she added to the overall experience. I had a... More

This restaurant is small but very comfortable --- a cozy and nicely decorated atmosphere. I would definitely recommend making a reservation. My wife and i went on a Saturday night and there was a female solo singer there whose voice was incredible. The service was very friendly and thorough. As for the food, while the menu is limited, the quality... More

The restaurant like many in the Gulfgate area of town are hidden gems. The atmosphere evokes memories of dining at a classic Italian restaurant in New York or northern New Jersey,which is where the origins of this restaurant are. The portions are generous and the service is very good with the owners actively involved in the management of the establishment.... More

I am so glad we stopped here. My husband is a picky eater and Italian cuisine is one of the few types we can both agree on. We both felt the food was excellent and the service was outstanding!! The owner does a wonderful job of managing the dining room with assistance from two runners. She made us feel very... More
