Amazing Italian food. Great service. I have been coming here for 2 years and look forward to my next visit. Their balsamic dressing is the best I have ever had. Highly recommend

We went for lunch before Sarasota film festival. Food was light tasty and fresh. It was a surprise as we just walked in without knowing. We had the clams with pasta and white sauce. The small portion was more than ample. We will return.

We had a great meal here with another couple recently. The evening's specials were tempting, and my wife chose on of them, a pesto shrimp dish. Some restaurants blind-side you with huge up-charges for specials that aren't printed on the menu, but not Guiseppi's. Her entre was only a couple of dollars more than the other pasta dinner dishes (typically... More

This restaurant is a sleeper. It has just changed it's name to Guiseppi's. Same management, same food (thank goodness). The best pasta in Sarasota. Fresh sauces and ingredients in everything. Not a flashy restaurant but superb food. I would, and have, recommend this place to anyone who loves good Italian food.

Our friends in Sarasota took us here on our last trip to visit them from Chicago. I grew up eating fresh Sicilian pasta, ragu etc. The food is perfect. Can't wait to go back in December.

We have been here at least a dozen times and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and service. Yesterday's lunch was a disappointment. There were only three tables of patrons. We had to ask for bread and when our entrees arrived he asked if we wanted cheese, said yes, he returned in 15 minutes with it. Also, two of tables had issues... More

Be sure to ask for the fresh pasta. This place has great food and the service is fun. If you like Italian, this is good place to have authentic Sicilian.

We stumbled upon Supernova Cafe after going to the movies across the street at the Hollywood 20. We were with friends and couldn't face another disappointing meal at the nearby Applebees. The Supernova storefront decor is a litle sparse and a bit misleading, but the food and wine were a absolutely fabulous. We had a variety of pasta and chicken... More

Kids that run the place are super personable. The food is tasty - reminiscent of Amalfi cafes. Shrimp Gorganzola antipasti is a meal in itself.

We're new to Sarasota so we've been trying many of the top restaurants. We decided to order take out one evening and I had a menu for Supernova that was left in my condo (in the past month). I ordered a bruschetta, a lasagna and fettucine alfredo with chicken. My husband picked it up on his way home from work... More
