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

Food was good, homemade bread excellent. Reasonable prices with lots of options on the menu. The pasta we had was good, with enough for another meal the next day. Service was good, not at all slow as was mentioned in another review.

This restaurant was nothing like I expected. It needs a total makeover inside. My husband and I were seated in a very tight booth. We could just about move around in it. The table was wobbly. We asked the waitress, if she could level it for us, but she was not able to fix it. I saw on the menu... More
