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

If you want to know what it's like to pay $18 for over cooked noodles smothered in Ragu and cheap cheese eat here.

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

Really enjoyed DeMarco's. We had a party of 8 with reservations. We were seated right on time, good comfortable seats, nice wine, excellent bread. Everyone at the table was very happy with the food. I thought the veal parm was especially good. Nice desserts too. Reasonably priced. Will definitely good back. I'm told this restaurant is very popular with the... More

The food is forgettable, as is the atmosphere. Surprisingly difficult to get into. Prices are quite reasonabe but in the end you get what you pay for. Sarasota has many, many very good to excellent Italian restaurants. This one is not worth visiting.

We decided it was Saturday night, I purchased a new dress and we wanted to have a little night on the town. I pass Demarco's on my way home and read about it in the paper, it looked interesting. We also read their menu. It was written so creatively, it had us excited to try it out. Well..I had the... More

My sincere apologies for falling short of your expectations. We pride ourselves on offering full course meals with good value and quality. We prepare our Marsala wihe sauce with fresh mushrooms...clearly evident and an 8 ounce chicken breast. We have never served canned mushrooms in the 15 years of service. Our soup which is prepared fresh and homemade is served... More

It was my birthday and was trying to decide where to go for a birthday dinner with the family. I was online looking for something more intimate and less branded and came upon DeMarco's. I read the reviews and they all were so positive. It was 4:30 PM on a Friday and had 9 people coming to celebrate my birthday.... More
