Quaint little lunch spot with excellent thick crust pizza and a ton of goofy signage. I will defiantly be back.

This features fresh mozzarella in their sandwiches but constantly forget the mozzarella... if you get to go make sure you check your sandwich because chances are they forgot your mozzarella. Two thumbs down.

Porchetta,...More

This is a typical Roman diner with authentic prepared food to take out or eat in. Lately they started to serve fresh pasta with authentic dishes from Rome like caccio peppe, carbonara and amatriciana.

Mozzarella Fella is a great place opened lunch in downtown Sarasota just east of Orange avenue. You can watch the owner make fresh Mozzarella, then enjoy it! I ordered a ball of Mozzarella to go and made my own Insalata Caprese when I got home. I also sampled the sausage and peppers which were excellent and a had a connoli which was wonderful.
