Don't Go Here For Pizza

I can only speak for the pizza, and would recommend ordering pizza at one of the may good pizza joints in Sarasota. They charged $2.50 for 8 pieces of anchovies. I guess that's one anchovy per slice. If I was the owner, I would re-think how to make these pizza's better.

We usually go for dinner but we both were in the need of a Papa G fix, so we headed over for lunch. Don't let the exterior deter you from trying this place. Fresh pasta, delicious sauces, wonderful house or Caesar salad and home made bread to die for. I always get the pasta and sauce option favoring the fettuccini... More

Love this place! Try to eat there once a week. Great food, service, atmosphere and people. The meatballs, pasta, chicken, hot bread right out of the oven, pizza, Italian beer......all of it.

It always amazes me how some of the best places to eat are the ones that are buried in the corners of some strip mall. Papa Giorgio's is no exception. And once you walk through the door, you can relax and kick back with "family." Pablo (the owner) certainly sets the tone on that. He always seems to have a... More

This restaurant is truly a surprise. I was there for a small private party with a group of friends during a recent visit to Sarasota and couldn't believe how well we were treated and how excellent the food is. The meals were certainly above the quality of your average family oriented Italian restaurant or pizza joint. Try what we called... More

I live here. So we like to frequent our local businesses. They advertise 'kids eat free...everyday;, That's what the sigh says. No additional stipulation. Twice we have gone in with a 3 year old and ordered from the kids menu - $5.99 includes fountain drinks. Both times we were charged $5.99 for the kids meal, $1.99 for the drink and... More

The Waitress and the workers that were there were very friendly & most helpful. This was our first visit and we did not know what to expect, as we did not know the area well. The Food was some of the best we've had. The bread was homemade & hot out of the oven and was excellent! Hubby had the... More

I liked the atmosphere so I may eat in next time, but this was take out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lasagne was the meatiest I've tried - love the homemade taste, plus fresh baked bread. A good variety on the menu, including a lot of mouth watering pizzas. If you are looking for a great local restaurant, look... More

Went for dinner on Sat. nite. They had a group of about 50 people from a wedding party who were in the process of leaving after dinner. The staff had tables cleaned and ready for us in record time. I had chicken parm, which was excellent. My husband had Portobello ravioli which he said was great. Bread was hot, crusty... More
