Description: Mozzarella Fella is a great place opened lunch in downtown Sarasota just east of Orange avenue. You can watch the owner make fresh Mozzarella, then enjoy it! I ordered a ball of Mozzarella to go and made my own Insalata Caprese when I got home. I also sampled the sausage and peppers which were excellent and a had a connoli which was wonderful.

“Excellent Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a small downtown restaurant/deli that makes excellent Italian food. A variety of meats is available for sandwiches. The sandwiches are served on a superb sub bun. Dishes such as lasagna and ziti are available, as are several salads. This is an excellent stop in downtown Sarasota.

We were at our leisure and requested plates, proper cutlery and enjoed a bottle of wine. lunch for 2 including bottle of wine andstarter, main course , coffee and a cannoli - 60usd - thats value - but it is CASUAL

“Where were you when...?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The restaurant was recommended and we knew it would be interesting when we stepped inside. It looked like three generations were running the place. It was busy even though it was well well after a traditional lunch time. And there were police eating there, always a good sign.

We ordered a chicken and a veal sandwich. They were both superb. The sauces were delicious; the cheese tasted fresh; and the bread was from a baker who knows how to bake high quality loaves.

But the excitement of the day was the news of the selection of a new Pope. All eyes were glued on the large screen TV as we all ate fabulous food and enjoyed the conversation which involved the whole restaurant.

A memorable event that won't repeat itself but I bet the food stays great all the time judging from the other reviews. We will certainly be back.

“The place to get a sandwich .....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We have a family rule not to go back to eat at a place twice during our vacation. I could not keep my kids out of "The Fella". All the sandwiches were fresh and tasty. We enjoyed both hot and cold selections. The freshness of the meats, cheeses and veggies were the key. The salads were also family favorites. The menu will meet the desire of the whole family
