Italian | Bradenton, Sarasota / Bradenton

Small, intimate and welcoming. Friendly staff working hard on their English and with great smiles that make you want to speak Italian. One diner hat spaghetti and meatballs with a side of fra Diablo meatballs. He loved it and People’s did a great presentation. One diner said the lasagne was very good. Another diner had tortellini with asparagus and she loved it. I had tortellini with red sauce. The portion looked small but was quite deceptive and I could not eat it all. Meals are not pricey and it’s great to have this little gem in Palmetto. More
