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.

We were promptly seated and greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne or Asti Spumante. My father and boyfriend tried the calamari appetizer. We received our bread, which was definitely fresh. They were informed that the calamari was sautéed in tomato sauce, not fried- no problem. They loved it. Our entrees came with salads, which were fresh and very good.... More

We were staying in Siesta Key last week and after reading the good reviews on T.A. we decided to give Oh Momma Mia a try. Being well-traveled in Italy and loving Italian food, we were a little skeptical. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a lovely woman who happened to be the owner/head chef's wife who sat us at a...

Sarasota has an abundance of Italian restaurants. Oh Mama Mia is a Chef owned restaurant that really tries to please. The menu offers very good choices and delivered on the 4 we chose. The calamari appetizer was a sautéed version and not the usual fried. The tomato sauce was light and the calamari was not overcooked. House salads came next... More

Great restaurant with great food to boot. Authentic atmosphere and very personal staff. Chefs are there to answer your questions and make you feel like part of the family. Make a reservation. We showed up at 8:15 on a Tuesday and the place was packed. Can't wait for their expansion next door, that is underway, which will add more seating.

Chef Guiseppe's food is incredible and everyone from Joe to Greg provides A+ service every time. My wife and I are regulars since day 1 and love every visit. We bring all our family and friends who visit us to Oh Mamma Mia for a perfect evening and meal. This is family style Italian, done the old world way. Take... More
