We were greeted by a lovely hostess who turned out to be the chefs wife. Ushered to a table in the cool interior and were greeted by gorgeous design. The menu was simple and not overwhelming. Attention was prompt. It was suggested we try the "special" salad...avocado, stuffed with tomato and mozarella, bed of arugula and the sweetest cantalope artfully displayed on the side. It looked like a piece of art! 4 of us shared this dish. The eggplant parmesan was sliced so thin and so tasty, the spagetti with meat ragu was devoured by the child who accompanied us, the special salmon prepared with a chopped tomato topping with herbs and spices was generous serving but was again, eaten and shared, it was outstanding. Gnocchi, what to say, like eating clouds, the best I ever have and I am the fussiest gnocchi eater, you had a choice of several sauces, I chose the 4 cheese. The chef makes this pasta himself and hats off to him! Desert was a mango granita, which disappeared by the 10 year old as quickly as it was set down. The tiramisu sooo good, and some sort of coffee filled cooked shell which was light as a feather and tasted great. There were no crumbs left anywhere. Must comment on all presentations and use of dishes and silverware, so pleasing and perfect. Our wine was a fruity French Rose reasonably priced. We can not wait to put this restaurant on the top of our MUST VISIT upon return to Sarasota....still dreaming about a wonderful meal with great hosts.
