Description: Sarasota's best Italian restaurant & Pizzeria. As soon as you walk in the aromas will bring you back to Sunday dinners at Nonna's house. Serving the best food for over 10 years. Voted Best Pizza and Best Speciality Pizza. Serving thin crust hand tossed NY style pizza. Excellent chicken, veal & seafood dishes. Extensive list of Salads and vegetarian options. Famous bruschetta appetizer like no other. Homemade sinful creamy tiramisu. Cozy, casual atmosphere.

Dinner was great. The veggie pizza was awesome; the eggplant rollatini was perfection. So much food we took half of each home. Even the salads were so good (and large) that we packed half and brought them home so we basically have a full lunch for three people and dinner so we didn’t need dessert. No we didn’t. But we got some tiramisu and brought it home - best decision ever. So. So. Good.

We ate there Monday night and had Chicken Parm dinner which was very good and then went back with another couple last night and since I love Veal Marsala ordered that. Veal was a little tough but the great disappointment was a Marsala sauce that was totally tasteless. No lemon or Marsala Wine taste at all just plain bland and disappointing. I won’t order it ever again! Since we sat at the rear most table I the restaurant we saw a cockroach going up
and down the wall during dinner. Restaurant should address this issue.

This unimpressive little restaurant in a strip mall serves equally unimpressive food.

Our asparagus/artichoke salad contained way too much lettuce and not enough asparagus and artichokes, especially for the price. The tomato sauce in our entrees had a strange sweetness unlike anything we've ever tasted in an Italian restaurant. We didn't enjoy the flavor. No fresh pasta, just the ordinary dried product that you find everywhere.

Pizza was nothing to write home about. Go elsewhere.

This restaurant was recommended as a good Italian restaurant. We called as we left to put in our name but still waited for over 1/2 hour. When we were finally seated and ready to order, they were out of any veal dish (that is what I wanted). My husband ordered a smoked pork chop and got a slice of ham. We will not be going back there again!
