Some friends in Sarasota had us meet them at Bella Roma for dinner. Parking on Siesta Key on a Saturday night can be problematic, but it is a nice are to walk in.

The restaurant isn't fancy, and it was packed and noisy. That said, everything was great. The wine list is very good, the roasted peppers were excellent, and the entrees were large and delicious.

And even better, we went across the street to the Oyster Bar for the band and dancing, then Olaf's down the street for ice cream. Siesta Key is a lot of fun, and the Bella Roma is well worth it. But make a reservation, as it is busy!

This is your best bet for Italian in Siesta Village. Good pasta, fresh bread, nice wine list. Flavio's and Bella Roma are connected.

If you are looking for a nice restuarant to go to in Siesta Key this is definitely a good choice. Located in Siesta Village, the restaurant is small and intimate and has great, fresh Italian food. You can walk around the village after dinner too.

We ate there twice, once at the bar and once on the porch. Loved it both times. The young lady bartender was very nice and efficient and made us feel welcome. The lady who waited on us the second time was also wonderful. Gave us a nice table and food was excellent! Felling welcome is so important when you choose to eat somewhere.
