I can see why they get excellent reviews. The ambience is lovely and the service attentive but the food has much to be desired for the cost. Great place to empress someone if your meal is secondary to your agenda.

From start to finish to most unbelievable meal I have ever experienced. Great ambiance, great service and unbelievable food. Authentic and great food are the landmarks or this restaurant. If you don't try it you will be missing out on the dinner of a lifetime. Roberto, Amelia and Anthony a the best! Randy O'Daniel

While this is a repeat visit for us, my wife and I invited her sister and husband to join us. We were quietly celebrating my wife's birthday. When deciding what to order, my brother-in-law was going to "be safe, and order Chicken, as it's 'hard to mess that up'". I recommended that he try their veal, as I have always... More

What a delightful surprise to go to CasAntica! We had no idea what gem nestled here off the beaten path. We were greeted by Michael who knew exactly who we were before we announced ourselves. Granted, we made a reservation, but even with that they still ask who you are. The restaurant has warm lighting and candles and it was... More

Authentic, delicious Italian food served up by cordial & welcoming wait staff in the absolutely charming atmosphere of a caringly preserved Sarasota historic house. We'll definitely go back and no doubt with friends who will appreciate it as much as we did.

The first time my wife and I dined at CasAntica Ristorante at 1213 North Palm Street in Sarasota, I was introduced to Bronzino, the tasty and meaty Mediterranean fish that has since become very popular at restaurants across the country. So we were looking forward to our second visit during our recent vacation. It just keeps getting better and better,... More

We were very pleased with our first visit. The place is a quaint house from the '20s that is nicely restored. The dining rooms are small as are the two bars. No liquor, though. The food was outstanding and therefore took a little longer to prepare. Service was good. The portions are large so sharing works out well. We shared... More

A unique place for a fine Italian meal in downtown. The small rooms make for an intimate dining experience and evening. The service is first rate, but can be slow when the place is full.
