I went to this Restaurant for lunch after having toured the museum etc. on the grounds. I was there with my mother and sister and we had a wonderful time! The Service was great and the food was delicious. Knowing what good food is about and us having culinary experiences throughout Europe we were all pleasantly surprised. I had the Calamari, my sister the special of the day (Mozzarella Ravioli with Marinara Sauce), and my mother had the Greek Salad. It was truly delicious and all fresh food which you could taste!!! Even though we are about 40 minutes away from Sarasota it is on our list to go back before going back to Europe. Give it a try!

salads and fries are good. sandwiches are fine. presentation is pretty. I did not try an entree. we had gazpacho cold soup and a sandwich, which was large enough to share.
one can eat outside, but I preferred to sit in the air conditioning. it is conveniently located in the museum administration building.

At lunch time there are only two places to eat at the Ringling museum complex. We chose the Treviso. The pizza is on a crisp flatbread with minimal sauce and toppings. the Caesar salad with shrimp is a lump of lettuce with 5 shrimp on a stick for $16.00. It could've been an appetizer but not a meal. The best entree was the soup, salad, and daily special sandwich of turkey. That was $13. The soup was navy bean with chicken. You get half of a cup. The sandwich comes with Swiss, lettuce, and tomato. You need to ask for Mayo. The salad is greens on the plate with a splash of italian dressing. The total was $55. For a sub-par lunch. Service was spotty. Would not return.

This was my first ever visit here. I had read about the $45.00 special in an ad, which includes 2 starters, 2 entrees, 2 dessert and a bottle of wine. To top it all off, everything was PERFECT!!!!!
Service by Eddie (Eduardo) was excellent, and he was helped out by Zack, also terrific and helpful.

My friends and I were absolutely amazed. This was so much fun to sit and enjoy the view (we sat on the terrace), after a great circus show while sipping wine and savoring the food. We will definitely go back. Great find!
