“A great restaurant downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very much a part of the Sarasota scene, Caragiulo's is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Sarasota. Definitely worth dining here either before a show or after or just with good friends.

“Love the pizza at Caragiulo's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Caragiulo's is a very popular spot on my favorite block in Sarasota--lined with nifty shops and galleries. The restaurant is casual and has a great vibe, friendly and fun. Food is dependably good, especially the pastas and pizzas, and reasonably priced. On a recent visit I shared a pizza and 1989 salad with my companion. Both were outstanding. Even though we live in Chicago, we prefer a Neopolitan-style pizza, and Caragiulo's delivers a credible version.

“Good, mostly authentic Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Had the Margarita pizza here and even though I was wishing it was wood-fired, it was probably one of the better non wood-fired pizzas I have had. The Tiramisu was fabulous!

Ambiance was cool, lots of pictures and such to look at.

“Good Italian food and worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Been a few times but always consistent food and very New York like
Been also,to its sister restaurant Shore at St Armands. Trendy with different food but good vibe. Unlike some others in town, this family chain cares for its customers and offers good value
Will return
