Whether for a business lunch in a hurry or a more relaxed family dinner, the Caragiulo family has a knack for everything from pepperoni pizza and soup or salad at lunch to a full course dinner, artfully prepared and delivered with a smile. If you're in a hurry, eat at the bar. If your preference is for thin crust pizza,... More

We dined at Caraguilo's this past week, and were pleasantly surprised as to the quality of the food at this establishment. Quality Italian food at reasonable prices. Dinner starts with a fresh, warm bread, and every course is of high quality. We had the Eggplant parmesan and the spaghetti and meatballs. Both were excellent. This is located right in downtown...

Not amazingly outstanding, but really really good. Service was acceptable. A comfy place that you can count on. If you're in downtown Sarasota and looking for some good comfort food and something casual but not TOO casual (patrons were nicely dressed without being "dressed up")...be sure to consider this. i took a doggie bag home and nibbled on this for...

Was delighted to see my favorite lunchtime waiter Marco when I came in for dinner. Caragiulo's is my favorite spot during the work week because the Italian Wedding Soup & Chopped 1989 salad are consistently delicious and quickly served so there's no problem having lunch within the allotted hour. The dinner pasta special "Wild Mushroom Ravioli" was AMAZING!! 4 large... More

Went wiyh a group of about 20 people. I ordered off the "Taste of Sarasota" menu...$15 for lunch Very disappointing. I ordered the clam linguini with "white sauce". The white sauce turned out to be butter and there were six full split clam shells in the dish with only three clams.

Very much a part of the Sarasota scene, Caragiulo's is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Sarasota. Definitely worth dining here either before a show or after or just with good friends.
