Description: At Caragiulos, the food speaks for itself. Using the finest ingredients, Caragiulos has served easy- going, inventive Italian-American comfort food since 1989. The bread is baked on the premises each morning. The mozzarella is made fresh. The biscotti is still baked by Mrs. Caragiulo herself. Eating here is more like a gathering in the home of a good friend... Comfortable... & Memorable.

This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Sarasota. They have consistently excellent food although their menu is a little limited. It's not cheap but not overpriced either.

Best Italian food in Sarasota. They have both inside and outside dining. It's downtown where you can take a nice stroll down main street for some shopping

My husband and I have been dining at Caragiulo's for over 20 years, mostly for special occasions, like anniversaries. I guess we're afraid of the experience getting old, but it never has. We've even had the same waiter if we sit on the upper deck area. We've never had a bad meal or bad service. It's delicious. It's romantic. It's our special place and we feel gushy about it. Thanks, Caragiulo's, see you in March for our 25th!

Nice restaurant. One we’ve been to before and is reliable. Only set back was one of our group forgot their ID and had to drink water instead of wine. We tried the veal marsala, pizza with artichoke hearts, red pepper; Mozzarella Stuffed Risotto Balls with sundried tomato pesto and pepperonata; Penne Pasolini with chicken, gorgonzola cream and sun-dried tomatoes; orecchiette pasta with sausage, calamari, and wedding zuppa. Need a long walk after this meal!
