We found this funky little spot in the Arts district of Bradenton. The menu was eclectic, the food was great and the service was friendly and prompt. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that we were seated in a small room in...More

Terrific for lunch or dinner. Tiny little spot with incredible food. If you order one of their signature sandwiches, you’ll think your actually in Italy. Great service and good wine selection. Fun and unique spot!!!

If you are hungry and looking for a delicious pizza or sub; this is the place to go! Everything is handmade with fresh ingredients, and so tasty. You can watch the VOTA people out and about or even walk around eating.

We're glad you enjoyed the food. One never knows what is happening in another person's life that might make them appear "cold." Both owners are extremely friendly, as you can see from other reviews.

yes -- we don't add seasonings to most of our proteins until they're ordered. Just tell the server that you want no salt in the preparation. Thanks!

The food is individually prepared so I think they could accommodate a low sodium request. Call first and ask.

Dine on the enclosed porch or main dining room of the newly remodeled 1920s bungalow, on the front lawn, or in the shaded backyard "park" graced by a huge banyan tree. Donna and Jim have created a colorful restaurant and gallery that is casually elegant with an emphasis on great food, international flavors and lots of love. We also cater events.
