After ordering a pizza I went to pick it up. It was on a slow night there. I was standing near where they make the pizzas and was watching as this fellow seemed to be counting to himself as he put toppings on the pizza.

While the food is very good, it can take forever to get it. After waiting about 45 minutes for our order we asked what was causing the delay. This is a small place with only 10 or 11 tables so it's difficult to understand why it takes so long. The waiter, Bob, told us that there were a lot of... More

We've been here 3 times for dinner. Each time the food was fresh and tasty. Last night I had a small Margherita Pizza. I was full so we have 2 slices left over for lunch. We've also tried the Eggplant Parmesan which was wonderful. Again, I took some home for lunch the next day. The wine list is good. The... More

We were served after a short wait. The food was excellent as was the desert. There is no better place in Sarasota to get an authentic experience.

The best Italian food in Sarasota!! Baked Gondolas are out of this world and outstanding Marinara sauce. Everything we had was fresh served hot and reasonably priced.

This little hidden gem of Italian cuisine is not to be missed if you are looking for a good pizza. The smell alone is enough to drive you mad as you enter. It is small but very intimate and the wine selection is good. The pizza is one of the best in town and the prices are reasonable. I have... More
