Had a late lunch here. Nice decor, friendly servers, good service. Welcoming bar, serving craft beers - just the thing after shopping. My wife had the asian salad, which she found OK but in need of more dressing. I had a salmon sandwich, which was good. Waffle fries were great. Bottom line is that the food is good, but with so many excellent restaurants nearby, we probably won't return.

Tuna BLT is extremely tasty. Waffle fries irrestible. Fried calamari was soft, tasty and cooked to perfection. (Disclaimer: we are calamari snobs!). Husband enjoyed sausage flatbread but we voted the other foods as 'top drawer'

While vacationing in Sarasota/Siesta Key we had not planned on eating in the mall. But the owner/manager was so welcoming and the menu selections seemed so appetizing we decided to be seated and we were glad we did! The food was excellent and just the right portion size. Value was an attractive feature too but the service, food preparation and drinks were also appreciated.

My wife and I decided to give Ziti a try and went during Happy Hour. Small plates for $5.00 and $3.00 house wine. Started with Shanghai Shrimp which were delicious and plentiful. We felt this was going to be a great, new find. Red wine was a simple, but OK, Malbec but for $3.00, who can complain? The menu is intrigiung with a blend of cuisines. My wife ordered grouper with pesto and wasabi potato puree and I had scallops. While tasty, the portions were small. Mine was 4 large scallops for $25.00...included ginger rice and substitued pea pods....no bread or salad. My wife's portion of grouper was better, but she was able to eat it all which rarely happens since we usually take home a "doggie box" for lunch for her tomoorow. Her entee was also $25. If we go back, we will have the shrimp X 2, perhaps a salad and $3.00 wine. Doubt we would go back for full priced dinner. Nellie, our server, was attentive and helpful..a real plus.
