    Restaurant was ok nothing special it was our first time there. The grill octopus skin was a little slimy and the branzino fish was over cooked. Didn’t complain to the server because the table next to us was complaining about their food not prepared properly 🤷‍♂️. Maybe it was just a bad experience for us.

    Our waiter was not very interested in doing his job for our dining experience . Wine is greatly overpriced and the food is expensive and predestination. I wouldn’t go back even for a free meal. Our worst dining experience in Sarasota.

    Our waiter was phenomenal in making recommendations and the food & wine were outstanding. Not cheap, as expected in downtown Sarasota, but worth it. Only downside were the drunk-loud ladies at the bar.

    Delicious pastas and wine, along with friendly service from Massimo and his team! My only feedback is for them to turn up the volume on the fun music playlist!

    The only positive part of the experience was the food. The service was the worst of any restaurant in Sarasota that I have experienced in the 9 years i have lived here. Our server had a horrible attitude and I had to repeatedly track him down to get refills of drinks and dessert menus. Our guests decided against dessert because our server was so put out. The manager was completely disorganized and spent most of his night drinking at the bar and talking with one table of 10. The noise level was so loud you couldn’t even talk to yourself and they cranked the music level to a decibel of a nightclub while most tables were filled.

    Very accommodating for a party of eight. Outside seating a little rough with not enough heaters and quality seating. We were offered a great table just inside next to a large window. This worked out very well. The service was very good and prompt. Prices were/are a little higher than other restaurants in the area but the food was very good.

    The food is very good but very overpriced for what it is. Poor seating practice: We had a reservation for two and were seated at a two top table. We saw many four top tables with two people and several empty four tops. We were told we could not be moved. The next two people party that arrived were seated at a four top table. We asked again to be moved to a larger table and were escorted to a side room without the ambiance and activity of the main dining room. We also noted two parties of two and three that were seated in the side room who turned around and protested and were moved to the main dining room. We did not make a scene when requesting a large table, so we will not be dining there again.

    I dined here with 7 others on March 23rd. My wife and I recommended this restaurant due to dining here three other times and having favorable experiences. The food was good but on the expensive end (I knew that going in). It was very noisy inside (would have preferred outside but they could not accommodate eight people). But the worst part was our waiter. He was haughty and rude, he basically ignored one of the women in our party because she asked for sauce on her meal to be on the side and he was extremely put out when he was asked by two members of the party if he could please split the bill. I understand people have bad days but it was one thing after another with this waiter. Needless to say he did not deserve nor get a decent tip. Not sure if I will dine here again or recommend to others.
