I dined with a group, each with different dietary needs. The very friendly waitress made sure that each of us was accommodated. She told me which dishes were gluten free, and was able to get me gluten free pasta. Another guest was vegetarian. She was able to tell the guests which dishes appeared to be vegetarian, but were not, &... More

It felt more like tuscany than Florida, but then again I was on vacation. The flavors were simple yet rich. The personal touch of the Cargiulo family to detail and hospitality is what will bring us back when we are in the area again. We came in on a cool, cloudy January afternoon and left feeling like we just made... More

Four of us went to dinner here before seeing a play at the Florida Studio Theatre -- it's within easy walking distance. Although they don't take reservations for fewer than six, they assured us we'd have no trouble being seated at that time, which was correct. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the server attentive and professional. We chose it... More

30 min wait was no issue, if the food had been good, but it wasn't. My duck was dried out, my wife's eggplant lasagna was cold and mostly cheese. No side dish of pasta, extra cost for salad. Pasta fagoli was more like minnestrone and not very flavorful. No grated parmasian cheese offered, until we asked. Many restaurants in the... More

This is usually a weekly stop in for lunch, sometimes with the kids as they offer the "make-your-own" pizza option... little kids love it! The lunch special pizza and salad or the half/half sandwich/salad options are great. Service is usually perfect if you get one of the long-time servers that have been there awhile. Occasionally, you'll get someone new and... More

6 of us had 7:30 reservations at Caragiulo's on NYE. We all arrived about 15 minutes early and had a drink/toast at the bar. Before we were done with our drinks, the table was ready. Everyone ordered al a carte and we shared meals from Pasta to Seafood to Pizza. Fantastic Meal at a great value. One of my favorite... More

Great value and wonderful food. We are a big family and sampled something from every part of the menu. It was all delicious. I especially liked the gluten free pizza base which was the best I have had, anywhere.

One of the best meals I have ever had and one of the nicest restaurants as well. The harp player was excellent and the service was on top of their game.

As a GF girl w/Italian roots it's difficult to find a good GF restaurant let alone an Italian one. I was like a kid in a candy store. We went with friends. Everything was delicious from salads & appetizers to dessert. We may have ordered half of the extensive menu. My husbands water glass was empty for half his meal.... More
