I've had bad pizza, but this "special" of theirs takes the cake. Tasteless, soggy and more. Place is a dump.

We have been eating pizza here every year on vacation for about ten years and this place is the only place we will get pizza in Sarasota. However, if certain toppings are not put on the pizza I would only rate it slightly above average. Our favorite is pepperoni, feta, garlic, and onions. There is just something about this combination... More

The pizzas looked good that passed by us. I had the eggplant parmigiana with a side of spaghetti. So much food it was two meals! Good heavy rich sauce.

We got the worst pizza ever in the US. It had no taste and was full of fat amnd undercocked. We had ordered some extras, and among them the bacon should have been dumped days ago. The diet coke (withount ice) tasted and smelled strongy of clorine. The garlic bread was underfried. Never again!

This was my first time at Demetrios and I was hungry for pizza. Our server was excellent. In this town pizza can be very expensive but the prices here are reasonable and the food and wine were very good. Great place to try again.

We've been going to this restaurant for over 30 years. They don't advertise- they don't need to. Their pizza is better than any other pizzeria around. Even a fire couldn't stop business. When they reopened, it was as if they never closed for repair.- people were waiting at the door. The main thing to know is that the pizza and... More

This is one of my wife's favorite places to have lunch. Their combo lunches (soup, salad, and sandwich) are a real value. The service is very good, and the staff is cordial. The food has been consistently good for a lot of years.

We have tried a lot of Pizza in Florida over the years this is some of the best we ever had. It reminds me of a Giridano's from Chicago.
