Great restaurant in a shopping center. Diverse menu, exceptional attention to detail in service and food. Just a place one should go.

We had reservations on a Wednesday night and 6 of us were promptly seated at a round table which was nice for conversation. The decor is chic and there was very subtle music coming from the back of the restaurant. A lovely atmosphere for a restaurant in a mall.

We sampled lamb, lobster, cioppino, sausage ziti, and chicken piccata. Only the chicken failed to satisfy - the chicken was very thick, not the thinner cutlets we expected.

Service was very attentive and the manager visited our table to check on things.

Overall, it was a very pleasant dining experience. We will go back there.

We didn't have high expectations of a mall restaurant but were pleasantly surprised.

The ambience and decor is good and it is clear that the staff are proud to be part of the team here.

Our server was Rich and he was first class.

We chose coconut curry shrimp and teriyaki shrimp. Both wee beautifully presented and very tasty with excellent choices in the way of accompanying vegetables.

We shared a chocolate ganache cake for dessert with creme anglais.

Along with one soft drink and 2 glasses of red.wine our total was $69 which we thought was excellent value.

Felt very high end and classy - we will return.

I usually don´t expect much from a restaurant located on a mall but Ziti really surprised me with high quality food, a very classy atmosphere and efficient service.
Food was great, with a creative menu and multiple choices from pasta to seafood or meat.
We had pasta, shrimps and salad and were all delicious. Prices are more than reasonable for such a wonderful restaurant.
Has definitely became one of my favorite choices in SK.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota. You can't believe such an upscale, hip place is in a mall. We've had brunch, lunch and dinner as a couple and with friends/family. You can tell that the owner, Dustin, took painstaking pride in choosing the decor, menu, music and special touches. He always stops by the table to say hello and make sure everything is excellent. The staff is knowledgeable and personable. We especially like all of the fish dishes, scallops and gluten free chocolate dessert. We've been there at least 20 times since they've opened and have not had even one disappointing item.
