“Phenomenal! This is a great old style authentic Italian restaurant. We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of friends that live in the area. The entire experience was great. We were greeted by the owner who was very nice and gracious. The restaurant itself is nicely laid out. ..you are not sitting on top of each other. Our waiter Giuseppe was absolutely perfect. He was spot on for the wine choice. He read off the specials and you could tell he really liked the food that was being served and how it was prepared. The four of us shared an appetizer of fried calamari…it was light and tender. A good choice. Three of us had one of the specials. The Timbale Parpadella with Meat Sauce and Eggplant. WOW. GREAT. The pasta was thin, the meat sauce was light, just enough cheese but what really made the dish. …the eggplant was grilled. Giving it an Italian rustic taste. Our friend, Rob, had the Shrimp Fra Diavlo. He said it had just the right amount of spice to give it a kick. We all had a different dessert they sounded so good. (We usually split one or maybe two.) The chocolate ice cream with the espresso was great. Profitteroles..yummy…creme brule …perfect and of course…the cannolis….yes plural there was three to an order….homemade!!! In Sarasota??? Want great Italian food, a nice relaxing place with perfect ambiance and superb service go here and ask for Giuseppe. You will not be disappointed. P.S Someone there makes great cosmos!” – Memawiggy
