We had the Caprese Napoli appetizer and then shared a vegetarian pizza. Both great. Staff very attentive and service was very quick.

I think that the title if this review sums up the situation. The food here is totally inauthentic and makes only a nod in the direction of serving Italian food. It would best be described as American/Mexican style food. Lasagne was execrable, seafood linguine passable. The other thing I didn't like here was the serving staff who spent most of... More

It was a nice warm evening so we were looking for outside dining. The only 2 seats left were one next to Subway very brightly lit and able to see inside that venue. The other end was dark so we chose the latter and asked the waiter to put the lights on. He stated they were not working at present... More

The venue is casual with inside seating and sidewalk cafe style tables. Behind me was a traffic circle and monument and beyond was a park. Lots of foot traffic on the sidewalk and it was kind of fun watching the passers-by. Our food was ordered and beverages served but after 40 minutes nothing had arrived from the kitchen. There seemed... More

We were killing some time before our dinner reservation and stopped here for a glass of beer and wine. Waite staff was excellent and attentive. We sat outside and it was a great place to people watch. Others around us had wonderful looking pizza's and cheese dishes. Families were also here as this is a great place for families and... More

Fab welcome by staff in this very busy restaurant (rightly so) and great suggestions from our waiter. Delicious Parma and mozzarella salad to start. Great bottle of Rodney Strong Merlot. We shared the delicious Spinach pizza which came with mozzarella, bacon, Gorgonzola, as well as fresh spinach. Amazing combo on a freshly baked thin crust pizza with fresh tomato sauce.... More

If you are looking for a quiet or romantic atmosphere, this is not the place. It is very busy, the tables are close together, and inside is very loud. The food is really good, authentic and quality ingredients. It's nice to sit outside at lunch time and watch the world go by. But it's a little more hectic than I... More

Stopped by while shopping in Saint Armand Circle for pizza and a salad. The house salad was perfect with a yummy balsamic vinaigrette. We shared a veggie pizza and it was fresh and the crust was just perfect. Service was quick and sitting outdoors is such a wonderful experience.

Stayed at Lido Beach and all the reviews listed Italian restaurants in downtown Sarasota. Walked from the hotel to St Armands for lunch and glad we didn't drive through the traffic. Linguini Di Mare was fantastic, service amazing and a great place to sit outside and enjoy St Armands Circle activity! Pizzas and salads looked great...can't wait to go back... More
