I have been to this restaurant many times and always had good food and friendly service. This family had a restaurant in Italy and moved to the U.S. The mom cooks, the dad tends the bar and the son serves. Do not be put off by the outside of the building or the parking lot. Once inside it is very nice, clean and cozy. Prices are moderate for the Sarasota area but when you have a good meal all the time who cares.

We decided to eat at the Bellagio Ristorante with friends for the second time in about two months, and made reservations for 6 p.m. to eat after attending a performance of the Sarasota Orchestra downtown.

We were the first to eat there this evening and everything in the dining room was set-up exquisitely, with a live yellow rose on each table. Once we settled-in to our table, the waiter promptly took our drink order followed by his brother bringing us each ice water and a fresh baked basket of warm bread. We ordered their Bruschetta appetizer for the table and everyone said it was very good ...best I ever had. We listened to delightful background music and talked while waiting for our entree’s, which came out fairly quickly since we were their first diners. All the food was delicious, our waiter was attentive and the atmosphere was charming. Other patrons came-in during our meal and by the time we left, the restaurant was nearly full. After our meal, we were offered a complimentary shot of home-made Limoncello ...a nice end to a perfect meal.

The Bellagio is now one of our favorite places to eat and I highly recommend it to others who desire authentic Italian food, prepared to perfection, served in a pleasant setting and moderately priced. Buon appetito!

This is a lovely Italian resturant warm and inviting, great service and food is out of this world and if you like wine they have that too. This is a resturant you will want to visit time after time for all occasions.

If you eat here and pay by credit card KEEP YOUR RECEIPT. I did and when my credit card bill arrived I discovered the restaurant had charged me $10.08 more than my receipt. When I called the restaurant his first comment was "Oh, you kept your receipt?" It sounded like "Oops, we've been caught". The credit card company refunded the excess charge but this seemed like an attempt to overcharge-if it had been just a one digit error perhaps it was a mistake but not $10.08.

We were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The picture online is so misleading. Wonderful ambiance, excellent food and service. Fairly small so should get reservations. The veal was outstanding. Hope to get back!!
