This is a cozy locally owned bistro. We visit here on weekends for breakfast and also take in dinners and special occasions. Sheri, the owner has specials that accommodate your palate and pocketbook. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. You can even take your own bottle of wine if you prefer. All the sides, soups, salad, breads are great... More

the menu has been changed to include a number of fish dishes . All four of our party chose Grouper with Prawns with different sides. Everyone enjoyed their meals and service , only pity was no one else in the restaurant on a Wedenesday to give the place some atmosphere. We shall go back again

My husband and I along with two friends dined at DeMarco's last night. The food was delicious and the service was great (Jo served us). We all had soup, salad and different entrees. All were delicious. We brought our own wine that enhanced our meal. We will be back soon.

The service was great and very friendly, the food tasty, home cooked Italian. We went there for a brunch with friends. The breakfast was delicious, better than I've had at other places more noted for their breakfast. I haven't been there for dinner, but our friends say it's a great place to go and not dress up and avoid cooking... More

The early bird menu is an excellent value. It ranges from 9.95 - 12.95 and includes BOTH soup and salad! The homemade soup was delicious (better than Panera), the salad was more than just greens - had cheese, eggs, tomatoes, onions, olives & homemade croutons. The bread basket had very large pieces of soft bread and this was all before... More

My friend and I went to DeMarco's because I had heard what a wonderful experience and food they had eaten. It was true. Our waitress, Jo, recommended soups (the Jerusalem soup was just great) and the over-all food ( I had pasta and 1 large meatball--very good-- while my friend had veal parmigiana with ziti) both entrées were of generous...

We have frequented many of the restaurants in Sarasota and we've developed a nice list of favorites. A friend suggested we venture out and try some new places. She recommended DeMarco's which always looks like it's closed when we drive by. Bottom line, we gotta get new friends. We made a reservation for 8PM during the high season. We knew... More

Met some other people for dinner. on a week night. I arrived early and had to wait way-to-long to be seated. The place was empty, but the staff just basically ignored me. They were talking, laughing and setting up the bar area. Finally seated, the waitress I had was great. She took my drink order and seated my friends when... More
