“You Don't Have To Go To Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

for Italian cuisine. The owner, chef, wait staff of this restaurant give you an authentic experience right on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Delicious entree offerings beyond the usual lasagna & parmesan change daily. The salads are fresh and beautiful and the antipasto makes a delicious light meal. Spend happy hour in the new Aperitivo Bar people watching on Venice Avenue.

“Best pizza and more in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We think MII has the best pizza and Italian food in a bistro setting. The wood-fired oven aromas permeate this expanded restaurant. The Italian waiters are good humored, and we enjoy the outside and inside seating options. The daily specials are quite creative.

“Made In Italy - Like Being In Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

You cannot get better Italian food on the West Coast of Florida. Authentic, delicious and served by a well informed and pleasant staff. They do not take reservations except for large groups and possible you might be seated at the large communal table which can be fun. They have recently added a full bar which can help overcome the waiting time. If you have not tried Made In Italy put it on your must visit list. During the off season it is even better as the staff is not so pressureed and you will probably wind up having a nice chat with the owner.

“Very Italian and relaxed atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I have eaten at Made in Italy many times. I love their salads. The pasta dishes are great. I like sitting outside. The decor is interesting and well done but it can be very noisy inside.
