Well my husband and I had a craving for espresso while visiting the Farmers Market in downtown Sarasota, so we decided to stop by at Sweet Mom Italy, and not only did we enjoy the espresso, but we also shared a delicious vanilla custard filled Bomba pastry. I chatted with Sylvia the owner in Italian, as she told me her family's brief history of coming from Rome to raise their family in Sarasota, while running this business. We will definitely have to return to try out a panini or lasagna. Thank you again and Buona Fortuna! :)

We had the chance to stop in for a gelato on a quiet evening. The small shop offers a selections from panini to Sicilian pastries and gelato. We will be back and bring family and friends to sample more offerings.

We wanted something different than a restaurant meal and tried Sweet Mom Italy for a light meal. What a surprise!!! This place has great paninis, pasta, and desserts- all homemade. The sandwiches are delicious, although there could be another slice or two of cold cuts in it- you have a choice of bread also. The gelato is unbelievable as are the cannolis,cookies, etc. The prices are very reasonable- especially for downtown Sarasota.
If you are looking for something delicious and different definitely give Sweet Mom Italy a try.

Skip dessert at the downtown restaurants. You will enjoy dessert here served up by a freindly family atmosphere. All pastries are wonderful and you can top off your favorite with some gelatto

Everything is made by the owner, there are no wrong choices.
Organic Gelato. Pastries just like in Italy. It's a must go place if you miss the good Italian pastries.
