It is hard to imagine who is writing the good reviews and what food they were eating. Our experience was just so bad. We were there on a relatively quiet Friday night. The waiter tried to be overly friendly and "cutesy", which would be OK if the service is good and food is delicious but since none of these was... More

The food is good ... Cooked to order and tasty. Veal is cooked very well, we had it 3 different ways and all were spot on. That is a test we do ... If they can cook veal well they know what they are doing :) You can view via screens placed in the room the chef cooking. Very cool!... More

My wife and I ate here this evening for the very first time and it was fantastic! The service was just fine and the entire staff was extremely friendly. My wife had the spaghetti vongole (with clams) while I had the fettucnine emiliana. For starters my wife had a salad and I opted for the minestrone. Both were quite good.... More

We stopped at this restaurant after intending going to a different restaurant and found it closed. How fortunate. A fabulous menu including gluten free and vegetarian choices. We loved the staff and chatted with Chef Guiseppe as he cooked our food. The food was incredible and as we ate we reminisced as scenes of Italy adorned the walls. The wine... More

5 friends and myself ate here and had the worst service I have ever had in a restaurant of this caliber. We had to ask several times for more to drink and our server dissappeared. The owner didn't apologize for the service we received and we should have told him sooner that we were not satisfied. Will never go back... More

This is my favorite Italian Restaurant in Sarasota. The food is true Northern Italian cooking at reasonable prices. The wine is also reasonably priced. A rare find these days. The TV screen lets you see what is going on in the kitchen and the staff are friendly.

Loved talking with the crew while they were preparing our dinner. We enjoyed the thinly sliced tomatoes topped with oregano(?) they brought out with the bread. Nice change. I couldn't decide between the lobster ravioli or the pumpkin tortellini and received several opinions. The amaretto cookie crumbs on top of the tortellini concerned me, but it was just a touch...

This Brooklyn boy has been searching,until now. Finally a veal dinner where the veal was delicious,not pounded to cardboard.Repeat that-delicious;tender,flavorful,and the proper portion. The pork tenderloin Saltibucca(spelling may be wrong) was equally delicious. The restaurant recently re-opened after expanding by taking over the adjacent store. The chef works the room and does a good job,he’s informative,caring, and proud of his... More

The place is in a strip center, so hard to find. It's kind of a "locals" place. But the food! Incredible. The owner, Giuseppe, treats his customers like friends. It's like eating in his kitchen at his home. Best value and best food in town. I go to Sarasota often and never miss going here.
