Fantastico!!!

I was staying at my place in Madeira Beach, Florida and we were told to visit St Armand's square in Sarasota. We arrived at around 4:00pm. Parkin was free and easy to find. The square has quaint Shopping and restaurants. The shops are not just touristy stores. There are actually quite a few nice... read more

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner our last evening in Sarasota. We both have travelled to Italy and both agree the food is exactly like we ate there. Fresh. Wonderful. Flavorful. We made reservations and suggest that you do also it was really busy.

Our lunch was delicious, and our server, Elena, was fabulous! Her suggestions and service made our dining experience even better. We enjoyed the smoked salmon and caprese salad appetizers, then shared a pizza (2 people). More than enough delicious food. Their mojitos were outstanding. Elena began the process of making them by picking fresh mint growing right there. Doesn't get... More

Home made pasta, good veal and chicken, and excellent wine... The service aims to please and the environment is very comfortable... What more can you ask for?

We can not say enought positive things about this family run restaurant. The friendly and attentive wait staff serves up the best Italian food in all of Florida! I'm not kidding! This food makes me homesick for both Providence's Federal Hill as well as Boston's Hanover Street. Not only do we eat here on our annual Sarasota pilgrimage but we... More

Le Colonne Restaurant, St. Armand's Circle, Sarasota, Florida, is my recommendation for Italian dining at its finest. Sarasota, Florida, is many things to many people. Families move to Sarasota from around the world to enroll their children in excellent public schools and in Olympic level sports training programs. Young entrepreneurs start new companies and recruit talented graduates from New College... More

This is a family operated Italian restaurant with the Father and Mother present every night to ensure that the food is excellent and the diners are treated like family. We go Le Colonne ten out of fourteen evenings. Simply the Best !!

We were attracted to this restaurant because the sidewalk café tables were lovely and supplied with heat lamps for the chilly night. We were not expecting absolutely delicious homemade pasta and great service! I think it was the best lasagna I ever had. The fact that it was a walloping big piece was even better and it came with a... More

Resturant looked really inviting, ordered a bottle of wine and main courses only then waited for over an hour, in fact people seated after us enjoyed starter, main course and were eating ice cream before ours arrived. We had only ordered pizza and steak so don't know why the delay happened. It really wasn't worth waiting for, the staff only... More
