Q-Tips say: Used our Groupon and enjoyed our meal, service and drinks at this family owned Italian restaurant.
Our shared appetizer was: Carpaccio – Paper thin beef sprinkled with oil, lemon, and shaved Parmesan cheese. My main entree was: Braciole and Orechlette – Beef rollatini stuffed with garlic, parmigiana, parsley and slowly cooked served with homemade orechiette. I Was told by our waitress: It is Nonna Rita’s original recipe, a traditional Puglia district. The Mr. ordered for his main entree: Linguine alle Vongole – Littleneck clams over linguine pasta, oil garlic sauce. Along with fresh warm bread from the oven and an olive oil mix for dipping made for a delightful meal.
Having had many good meals in good Italian restaurants in Chicago, we can say this is a good Italian restaurant in the Sarasota Fl. area.
