Our waiter Stephan stole the show!

I always say that great service can overcome mediocre food, but great food can't overcome poor service. I would say the Le Colonne wasn't the best Italian food I've ever had but it does measure up to most. A little pricey but considering the neighborhood it was to be expected.

My husband and I travel to Sarasota/Longboat Key every year and we always stop by this restaurant for dinner. The service has always been great! This year we shared a cheese platter appetizer which was quite large for the two of us but overall the cheese was fresh and tasty. For our main course I had a pizza and my... More

Let me start off my saying I have wanted to try this restaurant for a long while now. We went for dinner early one evening so the place was still rather empty. Our waiter took our order and did not return until it was time to pay the check. Then he literally stood over our table. I didn't enjoy my... More

The food is fantastic and the service is even better. Our waiter was world class, trained by royalty it seemed. He was proper in ever manner. When we received our dinner, he apologized to the ladies because the men's food was done first and had to serve to the men first. Any other time our server made sure to go... More

We have dined at Le Colonne each time we have gone to Sarasota, we like to eat a little early (before six) and we sit on the patio and watch the world go by. Great wine list and the food is always well presented, prepared and served. Always a positive experience.

Fresh pasta and very nice sauces and specials. It is just off the main circle at St Armands so you might miss it, but worth looking for it.

This was one of the worst chicken parm dishes that I have ever eaten. The chicken was rubbery. On top of that the service was absolutely terrible. We waited 20 mins for our check. We also asked the server her opinion on is the pizza was big enough for 2 people she said she had no idea. So we ordered... More

Everything is homemade. The women who served us made the pasta herself. It was obvious that she takes great pride in her work. There were 3 types of homemade ravioli on the menu that day. She offered to make us a sampler plate of the three. All were absolutely delicious, but the veal and mushroom ravioli was unbelievable! I don't... More

This was our sixth or seventh visit to this restaurant. We have enjoyed the food and service during our prior visits and had introduced several of our friends to this restaurant. The food this evening was great but the service very disappointing. The service got off to a bit of a slow start then got a little better,and the waiter... More
