Get a party size tray. It will feed 10 people. This is the real deal. Vinny and Cheryl are the best.

“REAL ITALIAN”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Cheryl and Vinny are GREAT people - we instantly liked them and felt like we knew them forever! GREAT chefs!

We had past fagioli (bean soup) which was the best! My husband had a hot pastrami sandwich which was enough for two people and I had Stromboli loaded with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese - to die for! It also was enough for two people. We had enough soup and sandwiches for another meal!

Their cookies are also delicious and everything is homemade.

I HIGHLY Recommend a visit or take out from this GREAt Italian Kitchen. We'll certainly be returning!

“New Italian Place on Pine Avenue is Great!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This new little store front operation has an extensive menu including just about every kind of Italian food you might want to have. They only have one or two tables so take out is the best option. We were not interested in going out for dinner one evening so decided to take a look at the menu I had gotten earlier in the day. We opted for baked zitti, eggplant parmesan, a stromboli and a pizza. We had no idea what the portions would be so we definitely over ordered for the four of us. The menu says that the portion would feed 2 or 3 but I think two items supplemented by some of their home made bread would feed four nicely. But it is hard to reist when you are hungry!! Vinny and Cheryl are from New Jersey and have brought their authentic Italian flavor to the Island. It is a nice respite from all of the seafood you normally have when in Florida. Call ahead and your order will be waiting. Don't forget to browse the pastries while you wait. I think they are a nice addition to the main street atmosphere of Pine Ave. Don't miss it.

“The BEST!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

What did we do before Vinny and Sheryl opened this place? The eggplant parm is to die for and Vinny and Sheryl are just the nicest people ever. Best take out in Bradenton, not just AMI!

I liked it! It is a small place, where they bake Italian bread and make fabulous sandwiches. Very nice personal service!
