For people who come down to Sarasota occassionally, the menu is fine. But whne you have lived here for 8 years and see the same exact menu each time you go, you stop going. We decided to try it again and stayed because it was convenient. We would not go back even though the food we had was good and... More

Had a very enjoyable dinner with my wife at the bar. Bartender was very friendly and took great care us, the sommelier recommended us a great wine at a special price!! Excellent choice to go with my Osso Buco and my wife's Veal chop both cooked to perfection. We ended the dinner with a tiramisu and a amazing cappuccino. Great... More

A weekend getaway to St Armand's Circle and Lido Beach had us stopping at this family run restaurant for a late dinner. We were welcomed immediately, given suggestions when asked for and spent a wonderful evening remembering another vacation and wishing we were back in Italy! The Carbonnara was perfect, the fresh homemade pasta cooked perfectly. Unable to decide whether... More

Externally and internally, this restaurant is attractive - a musician outside, white tablecloths, candles, etc. We were given a nice table inside the restaurant ... but then forgotten, to the point where we were close to having to get up and grab a waiter for attention. Then, the real letdown, the food arrived. The portobello mushroom salad was smothered in... More

We had enjoyable dinner at this restaurant…very attentive service. We both had salads and shared a main dish which was a pasta with salmon - excellent. The shared portion was generous! The bread was fresh and crusty... Very nice atmosphere. Felt we were fortunate to have found this charming place. Would go there again if we were in Sarasota again.

This restaurant is a little off the main circle. We had a little trouble finding it but it was well worth the effort. Every dish was fantastic and the martinis were amazing as well. Friendly service. Highly recommend.

How this place survives is beyond me. Second time back after a five year lapse. Rolls are stale, featured lobster ravioli rubbery and drowned in a pool of reddish gravy. A fishy taste in the ravioli but not lobster. The whole experience makes me want to swear off Italian food forever.

We really enjoyed our dinner of homemade ravioli and veal pizziola here. The food was so fresh and delicious and we will definitely return to try more meals. The service was wonderful with a great atmosphere for both indoor and outdoor seating. This is the best Italian on St. Armand's Circle and we would recommend you try it when visiting~
