Description: Mozzarella Fella is a great place opened lunch in downtown Sarasota just east of Orange avenue. You can watch the owner make fresh Mozzarella, then enjoy it! I ordered a ball of Mozzarella to go and made my own Insalata Caprese when I got home. I also sampled the sausage and peppers which were excellent and a had a connoli which was wonderful.

“Excellent sandwich, marginal salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Went for the first time today. My prosciutto sandwich was great. Lots of prosciutto and mozzarella cheese and excellent bread with a balsamic glaze. My friends house salad had a great vinaigrette, however it was quite boring and very skimpy. Considering it was only $1 less than my big sandwich, it was a big disappointment. It is a cute little place and quit busy. Would highly recommend for a great sandwich.

“Delicious lunch”

The food was prompt and delicious. Great spot to enjoy the day and people watch a little. Sat outside and enjoyed the weather. Highly recommend for a no fuss lunch, solo or with friends.

“Very Likely the Best Sandwiches in Sarasota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I've ate at Mozzarella Fella several times and would have to say that they serve what I believe to be the best sandwiches in Sarasota. Everything I have had there has been absolutely delicious, with the standouts being the Veal cutlet sandwich and the Short-rib sandwich (which is served about once every other week or so as a special). By all means, go get that short rib when they offer it; it is simply amazing! We have used their catering as well, and I would recommend them above pretty much anyone else I've used. The catered food was just as delicious as what is available in the shop. They did a great job, and they arrived right on schedule.

“Lunch at the Fella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I was recommended to try Mozzarella Fella from a friend of mine. Best decision I made to do so. For a New Yorker's stand point we are picky about our Italian food but since the owners are also New Yorkers it did my tastebuds justice.

The atmosphere is warm and inviting like being at home. The owners are so personable. Service is fantastic and the food........... delish.

This place should be a stop on everyone's list whether you are visiting or a local.
