I had Shrimp Fra Daivlo and hubby had Chicken Piccata.. he had nothing left on his plate.. i had a small amount to... More

Use to be one of our favorites but since they moved next door food quality and service has gone way downhill. After waiting 45 minutes to get our food, and it still didn't come, we got up to walk out. We left money for our drinks and bread. The waitress, who identified herself as a manager, started to yell at... More

The food is very good and the open kitchen lets you see how your food is prepared. I've always liked their veal cutlet sandwiches and their pizza. However, the staff often seems clueless. Example: I walk in and try to place a to-go order, and one staff manager starts yelling at the staff member who's taking my order, about "not... More

Being a Pizzeria/Restaurant owner for almost 30years myself I must say that the Pizza we picked up tonight was really good. I cannot review the other pasta and main dishes yet, but since the service and the very friendly employees made us feel very welcome we will give them a try as well. We definately go back, something I cannot... More

Ate here with a family member in the mood for pizza, who got a European-style individual Margarita Pizza, which was quite good (I tasted), made to order (so took a few minutes). I got veal parmigiana and was offered a choice of pastas. I got linguini and was told all the choices were the same flour, etc. They had angel... More

My friend Gina, her father Charles and I were in the mood for Italian. I shared the Fiocchi de Pera with Gina, the Asparagus and Artichoke salad with Charles and Charles had lasagna on the side. I thought everything was very good, Great flavor. Charles wasn't thrilled with the lasagna. He thought it tasted like it had been taken out... More

The restaurant is in a strip mall which isn't ideal but it was a very cute place with very good food. I'd go again.

These folks make me wish I was born Italian. What an incredible establishment. We feel like family going here, because we are treated as such. The food is consistently and outrageously good. I picked up takeout tonight, and the cook (owner?) acted like I was a prince. I really cannot describe how wonderful these folks are. A bonus for me... More

Sarasota's best Italian restaurant & Pizzeria. As soon as you walk in the aromas will bring you back to Sunday dinners at Nonna's house. Serving the best food for over 10 years. Voted Best Pizza and Best Speciality Pizza. Serving thin crust hand tossed NY style pizza. Excellent chicken, veal & seafood dishes. Extensive list of Salads and vegetarian options. Famous bruschetta appetizer like no other. Homemade sinful creamy tiramisu. Cozy, casual atmosphere.
