Wife & I visited for 1st time last week. This is as an excellent, traditional Italian restaurant. Small dining rooms, fast & expert service. Best of all, fine, fresh classic fare from starters to dessert. We got a bottle of Tuscan chianti, & away we went. Wife had steamed mussels to start - she raved about them. My caprese was... More

Casa Antica is a quaint place tucked in the center of downtown Sarasota. Nice menu and wine list and interesting specials. For example, my wife ordered a calamari pasta dish where the calamari was tossed with pasta in the shape of calamari.

We thoroughly enjoyed a recent dinner at this Italian restaurant. The host was gracious and assured us that using the parking building right across the street was no problem. How convenient! We were seated in a comfortable small cozy room and greeted by a wonderful waiter, Michael who could not be nicer. He was well informed about the menu and... More

Again we went, three years after last visit. Same deal: food is good, quiet elegant atmosphere, pleasant service..but about 20-30% higher than upscale Italian places with similar cuisine. Is it worth it? Being able to converse is a rare virtue in restaurants, and as I get older I appreciate it more. Just considering the food, the prices are not worth... More

Have tried most of many Italian restaurants in Sarasota but not this one before- a favorite of my wife's brother who lives in high rise condo nearby. He had lobster dish, wife had veal Sorrentino and I had stuffed, rolled veal. All three entries were excellent. Excellent service also, in converted, charming... More

We had veal scallopini was a little tough but still prepared well. Lobster fettuccine was excellent. Calimari was outstanding. It was not overbreaded or over fried.

Food is excellent, service is attentive and knowledgeable. The location is a little hidden gem, restaurant is in what used to be a home, historic bldg, each room is unique and the outdoor covered patio is an oft overlooked great spot to dine. Definitely recommend!

We had one of the best Italian food in Sarasota. The appetizer I had was yellow tuna was testy. My main course was ravioli filled with grilled artichoke and eggplant ... simply delicious. The dessert was limoncello flute...amazing experience overall.
