Use asparagus chunks not shavings in your pasta dish. Don’t dice your red snapper.
Great service intimate environment
Creative food beautifully presented
As always, Sardinia is exceptional and a very nice treat. Great, interesting food, wonderful service. Highly recommend this restaurant!
Authentic cuisine. Excellent wait staff and spectacular food.
Sardinia is one of the top restaurants in Sarasota. The service is excellent, friendly and efficient. The food is top quality and presented beautifully. We had the pecorino and prosciutto, and the baked tomato as appetizers, Both were excellent. The Sardinian wine we chose couldn't have been better. Entrees, the Halibut special and the Fettuccini with Wild Mushrooms, both prepared simply and to perfection. I will keep this on the frequent return visit list.
Excellent service. Unbelievable food. Best of Sarasota.
Our favorite restaurant in Sarasota! The food and service never disappoint!
Sardinia is always a pleasure. Very good food and great service. We are very picky when it comes to Italian food, the result of Italian mother’s whose cooking is better than most restaurants, so liking this restaurant is truly a good review.
The food here is always spot on. You can tell that everything is fresh and homemade. Very authentic.
Great service, very romantic place.
Food was above average, not great.
Appetizers were fair, ordered mozzarella and olives, cheese was cold and hard, should have been a higher caliber and much softer delicate cheese. Mushroom app was meh, good but nothing close to memorable. Bread was incredible, I would suggest they create flatbread out of their receipt, would be huge.
Pasta was very good with seafood, Paella was strange and different. Still tasty but wouldn’t order again. Gnocchi was really good, not great. Wife’s salmon was amazing, veggies completely uncooked.
That’s the summary, worthy of a try but only a solid B- for me. Sarasota has too much to offer for this to make my repeat list. Waiter was fantastic, actually one of the best that we have had anywhere. Suggested an amazing wine.
Flavors are thoughtful and authentic. Everything we had was delicious. Most of us had seafood and it tasted very fresh. My only complaint was the noise level. Hard for a table of 5 to heat each other.
This was our second time at Sardinia and all we can say is wow! Fantastic food and great service. We look forward to more meals at Sardinia whenever we’re in the area.
Slow service, mediocre bread basket, average main courses.
No reason to go back there
Delicious fettuccine with wild mushrooms!!
Wonderful food and service as usual
My favorite Italian restaurant in Sarasota........And the only restaurant that I order dessert!
EXCELLENT service and food.
Wonderful service and food.
Spigola (Mediterranean sea bass) was delicious. Friendly service in a quiet, attractive environment a plus.
Nice intimate and elegant settings, well prepared dishes. Excellent service.
Great food. Outstanding service. Lovely setting. Our favorite Sarasota restaurant
Our favorite restaurant in Sarasota! We love the food, service and ambiance. We have never been disappointed with our experience at Sardinia. Looking forward to our next visit!
A real hidden treasure!
Only went on OPEN TABLE reviews.
I have ate in over 25 Italian restaurants in this town.
This by far the very best!!!!
Not overpriced at all.
If you like REAL Italian food this is the REAL DEAL.
Wine list and prices outstanding!!
Service was the very best !
Fabulous restaurant in every way!!
Our waitress Arianna was so pleasant and helpful with explaining the menu and specials. She really completed a great meal. She helped us with a ravioli type entree that we split as an appetizer. From there I had a special, a baked seabass that was one of the best I’ve ever had. My wife’s chicken Milanese was special too. Highly this great restaurant. Prices were very reasonable also.
Food was excellent as was the wine and service
Will be back
Sardinia is the best Italian restaurant in Sarasota. Chef/owner Dino continues to enhance the dining experience in the restaurant and improve the kitchen he designed.
His home made pastas are a rare treat. The manner in which he prepares fish is extraordinary. On this past visit we enjoyed ahi grade tuna that was superb. Also the homemade tagliolini was excellent.
Sardinia also features homemade gelato. Fresh coconut was on the menu Saturday night.
Nothing else like this in the area! By far, the best in Sarasota. If anyone doesn’t like this place, it is simply because they don’t get it.
This time I tried the “Paella di Fregola”, which is not made the traditional Spanish Paella way, hence the name...
This particular recipe consists of fresh hand made Fregola, seafood, and Chef Dino’s bottarga. The flavor is unique, so delicious and fresh. Outstanding!
Can’t wait to go back.
This restaurant is awesome.
The chef is amazing.
I love coming here.
The appetizer with clams and mussels is worth the trip all by itself, but don’t miss the superb pork chop.
Attentive and efficient service, yet unobtrusive. Food is consistently fresh and well prepared. Bistro style restaurant close to Siesta Key and Landings Shopping Center.
Seafood dish and ravioli special of day were both tasty! Minestrone soup is always so well prepared... just enough veggies and perfect broth for my taste. Great waitress and bus service....Very efficient! Hard to get in as it is small... but that adds to the charm. Make reservations.
Julia was awesome and the food was great. We chose a Sardinian wine that was superb...
We had great expectations for Sardinia and it just didn't meet ours. Our appetizer the roasted mushrooms on the pecorino cheese crisp and the entree of veal raviolis were the best of all. The brick oven pork chop was tough and dry and other than the mushrooms and asparagus there was no sauce . The paella with mixed seafood was like mush. They use a type of couscous instead of rice. However the seafood in it was good. For the price, I'd go somewhere else next time.
We were told it was the best Italian in Sarasota. We were not impressed. Even thought the food was very good we have other favorites we enjoy better.
Love the service and food. Great restaurant!!
One of the best in Sarasota
What a gem! Always enjoyable!
Food was excellent. Service was, likewise, excellent as well. Noise level was high though.
Great food with warm/friendly and efficient service. Julia makes dining experience as if you were with her in Sardinia, Italy. Thanks.
Authentic Sardinian food with exceptional service.
