    Everything we have ever eaten at Bavaro’s has been absolutely delicious and prepared accordingly to our order request! Our go ~ to favorites…The Italian Chop Salad is exceptional, the Pizza’s are delicious and the appetizers are as well. Hostess and wait staff are kind, efficient, attentive and give so much great service always with a smile! There is music most evenings that is with very talented musicians. This is a place not to miss, you will become a regular!

Discover Sarasota

There are two times of year that define life in the Sarasota area: peak and off seasons. Population numbers may spike by about 20 percent in the peak season, and the change is evident as commercial activity ramps up. The local dining scene is especially susceptible to the changing seasons. Peak season is the best time to sample the diverse cuisine, which ranges from soul food at hole-in-the-wall diners to fusion menus in hip bistros. There are also plenty of fine dining options at white-tablecloth restaurants. Sip on a good wine while enjoying fresh cheeses or stop by the local pub to sample one of 50 different beers and chow down on thin-crust pizza. You're sure to get your fill of fresh seafood in this Florida town, or maybe you prefer vegetarian dishes featuring super foods like quinoa, goji berries, and sweet potatoes.
