Looks a little bit on the older side considering the prices. The food was pretty good although could’ve been better. The dessert was amazing. The wine tasted warm probably because it was so hot back where they keep the bottles And it was summertime in Sarasota but they should really invest in a wine fridge given how much they charge

Ordered an Espresso Martini that tasted like weak coffee. We asked for it to be made stronger and received a replacement that did not have Kahlua in it. It was more disgusting than the first one. Definitely not worth $12. Ordered the hand-made Fettuccine, it was hard like it was dried out. Overall, an expensive dinner that was not worth it.

Awesome experience. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but wow we were impressed. The special with veal and mushrooms was delightful and truly tasty. Don’t miss the tiramisu. Absolutely the best I have ever had. I could have eaten three of them. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I will return in a heartbeat.

Very acomidating for our party of eight. Rain storm ran us off the beach early. They arranged us a table at very short notice. Very friendly, you can see the smiles through the masks.
Everyone was pleased with their food.

Nice night, dined at outdoor table. Service and food were both excellent. We had the Lasagna and Zuppetta di Mare. Plenty of food and delicious. Pasta homemade daily! Our waiter was friendly and attentive, but not bothersome. Fairly priced in my opinion. Highly recommend!

Le Colonne served one of the best meals we have had out in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. The food was fantastic, service was awesome, and the place was very neat and clean. We highly recommend this restaurant, in particular for people that love authentic Italian food.

The server asked me what kind of pasta I wanted with my entree? I told her angel hair pasta. It was very good. When I got my bill, there was a charge for $8. I asked what was this? She said the side of Angel Hair pasta. I am bothered that the way she asked was that it came with the meal as a side, not as an extra meal. For an additional $8 I should have had more then enough to take home. I think they should let the customer know there is an uncharge.

We arrived for 630 reservation and sat outside and were given the menu No mention of happy hour which on their web site is listed 5-7 pm daily and we were not given Savor Sarasota menu We had to ask for it like it was a surprise to the waiter That was not a good start and gave the initial impression the restaurant was hiding something
Wife & I did order off Savor Sarasota menu. Appetizers were excellent. Wife had fish & I had chicken Portions small and red sauce was bland and same sauce on appertizers and main course and side pasta (served surprisingly family style) Canoli was excellent
Service outstanding

We have been meaning to try Le Colonne, but for some reason we just never got there until the other evening. We will be back. One of our standards for Italian fare is veal piccata. The meat was tender and the flavor was one of the best we have had in a long time. Service was outstanding. You will not be disappointed.

Very nice experience until the check came. We were intentionally ripped off by the waiter and owner.

All 4 entrees had upcharge. Penne was the side indicated on the menu for entrees. We asked if vegetables could be substituted. The waiter said yes. We saw the list of sides at $7 each which included vegetables. No mention of an upcharge.

When the bill came and each entree was about $5 more than expected, we pointed out the mistake to the waiter. He said it was an upcharge and pointed to the list of sides on the menu. We told him he should have told us. He said the check was correct (no itemization of upcharges on bill, just higher charge for each entree.

We spoke to the owner when we left. She offered no apology or refund.

This was deception and theft. This was not a mistake by the restaurant.

Fresh penne pasta and sauce as a side to entre was great by itself but flavor profile didn't enhance our entree. Each by itself was great, just not together.

We enjoyed the food and the service, but were sat in a very small gated area that tightly held two tables for 2 people each. We had to wiggle our way into and out of our seats it was so tight. It would have been more enjoyable if we could have had a bigger space.

I don’t usually make a habit of writing reviews when an experience is unfavorable but I am left with no choice. I have been here several times before and have been happy but after tonight I will never go back and would never be able to recommend it to anyone.
We were a party of seven. Besides having to wait an extremely long time for service , our drink orders were wrong or forgotten, had to ask for bread two times but the worse of it all 3 of our seven meals were awful. The rest of the party experienced mediocre meals. A bad filet Mignon , a bad dover sole, and soggy ravioli.
Also after ordering a 100 dollar bottle of wine and asking for another we were finished with our meals before it even came out. Had to cancel that and of course had to wait15 minutes for the check. They took one dinner off but had no problem adding an 18 percent tip.

Unfortunately stay away.

This place was a big difference from our dining experience last year. First, as we were seated, our server advised they were only serving a limited menu (Saturday night after Valentine’s Day). Our choices were limited so we ordered a pizza, we could only order pepperoni or Margherita. We chose the pepperoni and it came out in five minutes. Any Italian eatery should be kicked out and snubbed for serving this disgraceful pizza. It was clearly pre-made, and they just threw some pepperoni on top and warmed it up. I’ve had better frozen pizzas than this. We literally ate one slice each and asked for our bill. They were proud of it because they charged $18 for a tiny pie. We walked around the corner, stopped in at Riccos and had a real pizza. To add insult to injury, we didn’t even get our 100 points from Open Table for eating their swill. Never again!
