This is a casual eatery with really delicious authentic Italian bistro food. Everything is fresh, especially the mozzarella which they make themselves. You can eat in on the few tables available or take what you want to go. In addition to the yummy sandwiches that...More

I've eater here a few times, and most recently by take out. I had the classic chicken parm sub, which was perfect. The mozzarella freshness makes the whole sub better. There was not too much sauce, it was just right. I have eaten their salads...More

For those of you not from the northeast, a “hero” is aka: sandwich, sub, grinder or a grinder. Mozzarella Fella does Italian heroes as good as any place in Brooklyn. Chicken parmigiana, roast beef with melted mozz and brown gravy is what my wife and...More

One of a kind ! Food simply amazing but the service, it’s like every one of the employees is an owner because they treat you like a million bucks. They make you feel like you’re the most important customer when there’s a house full of...More

This is a must stop for great Italian sandwiches and pastas!! The eggplant rotine bursts with flavor and the eggplant sandwich is light and delicious! The bread is soft and doesn't leave you stuffed from eating a whole sandwich like subway or other fast food...More

Not much in terms of atmoshpere, but very good food and service. Like eating in your mothers kitchen - if she was Italian.

This isn't Northern Italian Cuisine, it's New York style Italian, but it's delicious and they serve large portions. Family style atmosphere. Also great restaurant for take outs.

I'm really not sure of a wine list, sorry. However, within a very short walk there was a Wine place called Sarasota Vineyard. Now, I've read some folks say the only thing happening in that place is the wine itself. That's... More

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.
