We were in town visiting and wanted a nice Italian restaurant to bring the family to for a special dinner. We found it! Tucked away in a small shopping center it would have been easy to miss but so glad we didn't. The restaurant is small and intimate and though the owner apologized and said they were under renovations it was quite lovely and inviting. The night we were there they were offering selections from two menus because of a local Sarasota restaurant event. We had a party of 7 and made selections off both menus. The eggplant parmigiana, chicken parmigiana, veal dishes and salads were all deemed to be excellent. The blue crab ravioli were good but a little dry on the edges. The beer selections were limited but still adaequate and the wines were good. Assorted desserts were all very good. Will definitely come back when we are in town and our family who lives near by said they were so happy to find a new, wonderful restaurant so nearby. Our service was good but it is a place for a leisurely dinner.
