Let me start out by asking where did the restaurant picture on Trip Advisor come from? It certainly is not D'Corato in Sarasota. The restaurant has a nondescript front on busy Rt 301. Their is an outside patio but the traffic noise would drive you indoors. The inside of D'Corato's is cozy but nothing like that picture. I went to... More

After reading several outstanding reviews, a group of us decided to try this restaurant, and it was excellent. Everyone said their dishes were outstanding and definitely would return if they were in the Sarasota area again. Highly recommend this experience, you won't be disappointed.

We have been back to this restaurant this year, and it is as good as before, if not better. Some people might not find the surroundings so special and some might want heavier, tomato sauces, but this is genuine. Extremely good ingredients, excellent cooking and very friendly service. It is a place with character and quality.

The food is delicious and the server, a son who has been in the U.S. only three years, as of 2014, but speaks excellent English, is delightful and attentive. My wife and I had a memorable dinner, and will recommend this place to our resort management and return when we have an opportunity. The server proudly told us that his... More

Food was tasteless and of poor quality, portions small. The owner's son became belligerant and downright nasty when we presented a Restaurant.Com $25 gift certificate. He did not want to accept our Am.... More

We visited for the first time with a large group and the staff handled things nicely. I was told they make all their pasta in-house so I had to try it. I ordered the farfalle with shrimp and it was awesome. Just a hint of orange in the little sauce, but it was excellent. I will definitely be back just... More

We had a grilled vege app that was excellant. We really didn't know what to expect. The name has been changed to D'Corato Ristorante but it a... More
