A less-crowded option for great seafood in a less tourist infested area of Sarasota!
Review for Valentino Pizzeria & Trattoria by Elling
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingHalf Rating
Valentino has the best Italian food in Sarasota, in my opinion. Their pizza is well-known in the community for being one of the best! If pizza isn't your thing, the menu has several great, classic Italian dishes as well as contemporary spins on classics.
Pros: The service is quick and pleasant. Several of their servers have worked there for years.
Cons: It can be packed on the weekends due to popularity.

Great atmosphere on Sarasota's waterfront! Ocean breezes from the Gulf of Mexico with tropical drinks and live music. They've also got daily rentals for wave runners, sailboats, kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards. Fun place!

Great outdoor dining option in Lakewood Ranch. The bottomless mimosa deal on Sunday can't be beaten! $15 for unlimited mimosas.
Pros: Lots of parking and great outdoor but well-shaded tables.
Cons: A bit on the expensive side, but the food is of great quality.

O'Leary's has an amazing, laid back atmosphere. The food is delicious and there's usually chill live music. My friends from out of town always beg to go to O'Leary's because of the drinks, great seafood, and beautiful view.
Pros: The view can't be beaten, the seafood is delicious, and the drinks are great.
Cons: Parking can be challenging since the restaurant shares the public parking lot with Marina Jack and people tend to park there and walk downtown.
