We tried this Italian restaurant quite by accident. It was a tiny restaurant near downtown Sarasota with all the charm you would hope for in a family run restaurant. Mama cooks in the kitchen, papa tends the bar and their two teenage sons are the waiters. The sons are the only ones in the family who speak English. Many veal dishes to choose from. I had the chicken picatta which was quite tasty. The one faux paux was when I ordered a bottle of their 2009 Valpolicella Ripassa, the waiter brought it to the table already opened. The young waiter told me his papa just opened it up at the bar. Other than that it was a very pleasant dining experience made even more so with our friends and Longboat Key neighbors Caryl and Bernie from Chicago.
