Best Italian food in Sarasota! Every time I am in town I make it a must to dine at this establishment. THE FRESH HOMEMADE PASTA, don’t even get me started….it’s melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The menu is wonderful and gives you many selections all the way from your regular, Italian favorites to a watermelon, fennel, and goat cheese appetizer (so deliciously refreshing... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the world! Andrea always finds a way to make a visit special for each table. You can tell he really cares about his customers. The flavors and presentation of the food is unsurpassable. I recently tried the beet salad and I cannot stop thinking about it... I didn't like beets until I... More

Don't let the location fool you. Andrea's is located in the classic old Florida strip mall. The exterior appearance leaves a lot to be desired, but any savvy traveler knows that there are often gems to be discovered in places like this if you get a tip. This is your tip. I'm a Sarasota local living on Siesta Key. I... More

For heaven's sake, do something with the outside appearance of your establisment. We had a reservation, got as far as the front door and called from the street to cancel. Dead plants and bare dirt in the window boxes, dead plant next to front door, table in the window unbussed with only two tables occupied. Makes one wonder what the... More

Andrea provided personal service at every course and wine pairing to our gourmet extravaganza. Every course was excellent and the options broad. We were a group of 12 in a private dining area and allowed Andrea to make the selections and spoil us. He and his team "outdid" themselves. Appreciative hugs were given by all.
