There are several places that do a good imitation of a cheese steak down here, but nothing tasted like it did back in Philly until I found this place. Had it wiz wit, had it with Provolone, and each time has been awesome. Spoiled for Cheese steaks now. These guys are from Philly and it shows in their cooking. It's now so cool, when someone complains that you can't get a good cheese steak here in Florida and I go "ah ha, NOW you can" . They look at you in disbelief, which lasts until they taste it, and admit I was right. :) I shouldn't go as much as I like to, but it's so darn good. Thank you.

Missing a true cheesesteak or hoagie that reminds you of eating back home in Philly? Then you are at the right place!
They use the real Amaroso rolls!
The crab fries are great too..
Perfect spot to stop in on the way to or from the beach!

Sarasota is not a city known for its Cheesesteaks, but perhaps it should be. Gentile Bros offers a delicious sandwich at a reasonable price with outstanding service. YUM!

If you are anywhere near Sarasota and you do not eat at Gentile Bro's your wasting your time and clearly you do not enjoy great food. Being from Philly I appreciate great food, mainly a great cheesesteak... not an Applebee's "Philly". I'm talking about an actual Amaroso roll, prime cut steak and cheese wiz smothered Philly cheesesteak. Gentile Bros gives you an authentic Philly cheesesteak. The owners are Philly natives and brought Philly food to the sunshine state. Walking into this place you are immediately back in Philly. Besides steaks they have crab fries, hoagies, chicken cutlet sandwiches and I have no idea how other food places are even attempting to compete with Gentile Bros. Besides the food being better then any other place in the entire area Nicky and Billy treat you right every time you walk in. Do yourself a favor and go see the boys at Gentile Bros and treat yourself to the best steak Philly and florida has to offer.
