“Love this place! Great food and delightful staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

What a great evening and unexpected delight! They have a great small plate menu and happy hour pricing on wine..........and the food was absolutely delicious. The best bruschetta I ever had! Although we all ordered off the small plate menu, I can't wait to go back for the regular dinner menu. When I called for information on their dinners, Lynny was helpful on the phone and her enthusiasm was contagious! Jo was our waitress and she made the experience perfect! We will be back soon!

“Meatball Lynnie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

On a Saturday evening in July of 2013 our party of six dined at DeMarco’s Italian Grill in Sarasota. We were celebrating my daughter’s upcoming 16th birthday. My sister had made reservations even though it was the slow season because my mother is in a wheelchair. It was a good idea because the restaurant was about eighty percent filled. My sister and mom live in the Sarasota area and one of their close friends recommended this restaurant. As soon as we arrived, one of the waitresses ushered us to an easily accessible table. Although all the wait staff works well together, our main waitress was “Meatball Lynnie.” What a hoot she was! She had us singing, laughing, paying trivial pursuit, and there were hugs for everyone. At the end of our meal, the owner came out and joined in the fun. He told us he had a special offer: if we would take Lynnie home with us, he would give us free meals for life!

All meals start out with Italian bread, soup and a salad. The soup and salad were enough for a meal themselves! All of our entrees were excellent. Our party had the Veal Parmigiana, Baked Ziti, Shrimp and Scallops Alfredo, Chicken Aioli. I had the Veal special, which came with a cannoli. There was so much food; we had the leftovers for lunch the following day. Usually my wife and I don’t like to go to “Italian” restaurants because we can make better and fresher Americanized Italian at home, so we weren’t thrilled with my sister’s choice; however, by the end of the evening we all agreed DeMarco’s had outstanding Italian cuisine and is now one of our favorite restaurants!

“Great Experience at De Marcos Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My friend suggested De Marcos for breakfast. It's one of her favorites. The Greek omlette was delicious, the service was excellent, and it was a great experience. Linda was our server. ... and hats off to her for great service. If you're looking for a great little place, try it! ... Boots Florida

“The Best Kept Secret of Sarasota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Ah. Maze. Ing. Amazing value for your money, amazing customer service, and amazing food! You get welcomed by the outgoing and friendly staff right away. You also get a lot of food for your money. With an entrée you get a soup, salad, bread and your entrée. They even let you order things not listed on the huge menu. The good is great, true home cooked Italian.

Overall, this little place is the best kept secret in Sarasota. If you pass up this restaurant you're truly missing out.
