Your host Roberto Ercolani came to Sarasota from Rome, Italy, bringing the best and most delicious authentic Italian dishes to this area. He has been in the restaurant business since his youth. As owner of CasAntica Ristorante, Roberto provides a refined and unique Italian culinary boutique atmosphere.
The restaurant occupies a 1926 historic home nestled among the trees on the edge of downtown Sarasota. Patrons may choose indoor or outdoor dining (weather permitting), including our lovely rooftop seating area, tucked in under the branches of the old live oak trees that surround the building. The perfect setting… exclusive, romantic and intimate.
“At CasAntica each and every dish is prepared upon request with tender loving care,” says Roberto. “Our food is not pre-cooked, ensuring the highest quality and fresh flavor every time. Because we strive to provide only the freshest meals for our patrons, please be patient and allow the time needed for your meal to be cooked to perfection. Enjoy a glass of wine while you enjoy the atmosphere… We are confident that you will be delighted with your entire dining experience!”
In true Italian tradition, this beautiful small historic house allows them to greet each of their patrons each evening. Their goals are to provide a personalized dining experience to everyone that enters their Home, to share their love of Italian cuisine by providing a freshly prepared delicious authentic Italian meal, and more importantly, to have fun doing what they love most… serving people.
“CasAntica: a place to gather with old friends, meet new friends, and to enjoy a beautiful dining experience!”
“CasAntica Ristorante is the finest Italian restaurant in Sarasota. We enjoy dining on the roof top, in the beautiful courtyard, or especially in the fire place room. The food and service are outstanding. Some of our favorites include the Jumbo Shrimp in FILLO Dough, the Buffalo Mozarella and Prosciutto, Spaghetti Carbonara, Linguine Pescatore, NY Strip Steak, Nodino Di Vitello, Veal Francese, and for dessert Peach Sorbet or Tiramisu. Absolutely fabulous! If you haven’t tried CasAntica yet, you’ve missed out on a great experience. Thank you Roberto! It is always a pleasure dining at CasAntica.” Manuel Tran and Scarlet Strapko
