We've been looking for a thin-crust pizza, reminiscent of true Italian stuff. This place is very friendly, efficient, and their pizzas are pretty much the way the Italians would make them - simple, wood-oven thin crust, olive oil or great tomato base, and just enough toppings to make it delicious without overdoing it. Our favs: Arugula & Fresca. SO far,... More

We were 4 adult diners. 2 of us got food which was unacceptable. The salad had old, even rotten lettuce, the baked chicken breast was simply not good. Our waiter was nice and trying to be accommodating, but that didn't make the food any better.

One of the best pizza's in Sarasota and definately the best on St. Armand's! I order it weel done because I like it a little crispy around the edges. This place has all the atmosphere of St. Armand's with it's outside seating and well balanced menu, but none of the attitude or high price. Also great burger, homemade sangria and... More

We had the soup of the day & the fish, which was Snapper & both were very good, fresh, simple and delicious. We ate al fresco- however inside... More

When in the area we always visit St. Armand Circle because it is always so interesting to see and discover more eateries, etc. This time we decided to try the Venezia and sit out by the street. We just wanted a quick lunch and selected the saugage and red pepper pizza. This was one of the best pizzas I have... More

Visiting St. Armand's Circle is always an adventure, but today we made a fun new )for us) discovery-Venezia! Right on the main circle, with tables outside and inside, is a wonderful spot for appetizers and a drink or lunch or dinner! The people watching is part of the fun. We were seated quickly at an outdoor table. Our server, Dorian,... More

We were seated quickly during the busy holiday season and enjoyed a few glasses of wine, pasta and pizza at this upbeat Italian restaurant on the circle. The seating is a bit tight inside, but it was fun and family friendly.

We had a quick visit, good service and fun ambience. Nice Italian flare. Pizza was a little undercooked but had good flavor. Sidenote: bathrooms were very similar to Italia & most of Europe, pretty nasty.
