We enjoyed our lunch at Panificio. Our pizza slices were very tood, they had a nice selection of beers, and the outdoor patio was pleasant.

I love the eggplant pizza, wonderful taste. Crunchy thin crust, moist cheese and eggplant. This place has no decor, you can sit in or out. I like the terrace under the awning.

Undoubtedly the best pizza in town. Great staff that takes care of their customers. We will always order our pizza from here as long as we live in Sarasota. Long live the angry pie.

The pizza is outstanding.There are several varieties. You may select different slices for carry out or order a whole pizza for eating in or take out. The crust is thin and crispy even when reheating at home.

The pizza is great however, be prepared to deal with very rude, unhappy staff- every, single, time! We never want to call and order from them because we know the person on the phone will be incredibly rude and unhappy to serve us. Please fire your current staff and hire people who are professional and friendly.

Good place for a quick lunch. Large selection of pizza by the piece with little waiting. Also all the traditional quick lunches-calzones etc. You can also call ahead and pick up a whole pizza with convenient parking right in front.

Il Panificio is one of the most popular pizzerias in Sarasota. It's been at its Main Street location for years and has a very loyal following. They offer a number of tasty pizza selections, and it's a great place for a quick stop --- a slice or two.

Took my niece out for Lunch on a Sunday. The smells inside were great. Felt like you were eating with family. The meatball Parm was one of the best I have had in a long time Friendly staff. Caesar salad was yummy.
