“Good but not memorable”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We had a nice meal here last week. The service was friendly and the good was good. However, one week later, I find I cannot remember what I had for dinner!

“Food of the gods”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

If you are looking for a culinary experience that you will never forget, try Andrea's . Having traveled extensively around the globe, I have had the great fortune of dining at some of the best restaurants in the world. Michelin Star winners included. But I must confess that this little gem in the Gulf Coat city of Sarasota has to rank among the stars! The care and passion that Andrea brings are evident in each delicious bite of of the fantastic selections available. Andrea prepared a tasting menu for our Valentine's day dinner and each dish left us breathless. I urge you to make Andrea's your choice for your next dining out experience.

“Best Italian Restaurant in Sarasota”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

If you happen to be in the Sarasota area, make the effort to find Andreas and you won't be disappointed. This hidden gem, is a culinary experience, serving authentic Italian fare. Everything is fresh and the presentation is exquisite. Hopefully, Andrea himself, will visit your table, but if not, the staff is beyond compare. They are very friendly and lively, and completes this extraordinary dining experience. I recommend it highly....ENJOY!!!!

“Small Restaurant Big Flavor”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Visited this restaurant for the 2nd time in two months. Excellent both times. If you are not a big fan of chains like Roy's or Flemings (right down the road), you will love this place. Small intimate resaurant but good selection of reasonably priced food and wine. Andrea and the wait staff is very friendly and helpful. The tomato-basil soup is excellent and goes great with a glass of chianti. Will definitely return next time I'm in the Sarasota area.

“Go for the Veal”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Terrific little Italian restaurant, located in strip mall. Nice ambiance, Reservations accepted. One of our group had fish. Dish was very good, but you can get fish anywhere. The standout was the veal, either veal three ways, or osso bucco, terrific. The duck also well prepared.
