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.
