The food and service are outstanding! I've been here several times and have sample everything from the pasta dishes, pizza, buffalo wings, sandwichs, philly's, Reuben's, and salads and everything is so fresh and delicious. They also have the NFL ticket for all the football fans. Great place to watch the game Bills fans! Although, they are supporting a lot of... More

We dined for the first time at Mama Onesti's last week and enjoyed their current $39.95 dinner special. For that price you received any two entrees off their regular menu, a bottle of wine and two cannolis. They start you out with little rolls made from pizza dough topped with chopped garlic and oil. They were delicious. They only would... More

Wasn't impressed, was overpriced and portions were small. Their sauce was good with the pasta but that wasn't enough to do a repeat visit.

Some friends and I ate at the University Avenue location which is located in a strip mall. Atmosphere was so, so and our particular waitress didn't have much of a personality. However, the food was really good. They bring out a basketful of bread knots that are dripping with garlic and olive oil. One could make a meal out of... More

This was a little Italian place with great service, a comfortable dining environment, and good food. There was quite a bit to choose from on the menu. I would return.

Being married to an Italian and cooking Italian food in our home, I like to think I do know something about it. Stopped in Onesti's late in the evening so that may have been the reason for the very hard and tough garlic knots that were swimming in butter. I ordered pasta with sausage and it was just ok, nothing... More

This is Sarasota, not NY. We have dined here several times in the past and had experienced some of the negative issues found in other reviews. Particularly those service, value and qualitry issues. So what brings us back?? Its the draw of the BOGO coupon, Even in season you can find one in the Sarasota Herald. We were in the... More
