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.

Caragiulo's is a very popular spot on my favorite block in Sarasota--lined with nifty shops and galleries. The restaurant is casual and has a great vibe, friendly and fun. Food is dependably good, especially the pastas and pizzas, and reasonably priced. On a recent visit I shared a pizza and 1989 salad with my companion. Both were outstanding. Even though... More

Had the Margarita pizza here and even though I was wishing it was wood-fired, it was probably one of the better non wood-fired pizzas I have had. The Tiramisu was fabulous! Ambiance was cool, lots of pictures and such to look at.

Been a few times but always consistent food and very New York like Been also,to its sister restaurant Shore at St Armands. Trendy with different food but good vibe. Unlike some others in town, this family chain cares for its customers and offers good value Will return

Took a friend out for his birthday. Restaurant was very nice, but if you want to have a conversation, it's difficult. Very noisy. Felt like I had to shout across the table. Our waitress was either new, had too many tables, or was just not good. Very disappointed with the service. The food however, was fantastic. We would go there... More
