We met a couple while traveling in Ireland this summer that recommended this restaurant to us. We decided to give it a try while visiting Sarasota. When we arrived at the restaurant we were a little apprehensive. It was in an old shopping plaza. We made reservations before going since there were 10 of us. I am glad we did.... More

We visit Sarasota several times a year and we always dine at Dolce Italia when we are in town. This week we were able to dine there twice, and both times the meal was superb. The first night we had the pappardelle with sausage and linguine seafood. My wife asked for extra spice on the linguine and it was done... More

Our car broke down in Sarasota, and we decided to look up a restaurant on Trip Advisor for dinner. This restaurant caught our eye and we went. The place was completely empty, and both owners were there with two servers to help out. There are magnificent specials that are not available on the menu, and we both chose fro that... More

I have sampled the 'Trenne Dolce Italia'. It is simply exceptional. Dolce Italia is quite different to the traditional 'American Italian' restaurant.

I love italian food. The pasta trenne dolce italia and the tiramisu were simply outstanding. Incredible food. I believed I was in Italy. One of the best Italian dinner I have had recently. I will be back!

Each time we visit Sarasota, the first restaurant we visit is always Dolce Italia and we are always thrilled with everything. The food is incredible.....it is the closest you will get to actually being in Italy. The blackboard specials are definitely the way to go. Just as in Italy, the chef Tatiana plans her menu based upon only the best... More

Thank you to everyone who uses Trip Advisor and apps like Yelp for leading us to this great find! It is a small restaurant, with homemade Italian food. Maybe 10 tables, but such a cozy feeling to be here. The owners have only been here about 6 years and the restaurant has been open close to 4. They will be... More

You have to try this little slice of Italy in Gulf Gate. I heard about Dolce Italia from a friend and decided to take my girlfriend for dinner. The place is small but provides an intimate atmosphere that reminds you of restaurants in Europe. As soon as we walked in we were warmly greeted by the owners Tiziana and Pippo... More

The restaurant is small and intimate, and authentic looking, but there is no atmosphere. The staff provides good service, but the food is just average and prices are high. Having had wonderful meals at other local Italian restaurants, as well as authentic meals in Italy, this is, again, just average, and small. The meals are small. You have the option... More
