Nice little local restaurant with whimsical decor. We had the calamari, pasta w/ vodka sauce and the eggplant parmesan sandwich. All were very tasty. We really enjoyed the vodka sauce. My husband also had a smal cannoli and said it was also very good. The server was very nice and willing to make recommendations. The chef brought the plates which... More

It’s not fine dining, But if you want great Italian food made fresh this is the place to goto. This is the first time that I have written a review. But I took the time because the food was so good.

it aint easy being cheesy. Eggplant parm should be renamed eggplant mozz! suggestion throw in a roll or sm salad or something. i still prefer Bravo's - more like the Italian I'm used to (and for the same price they include pasta and a homebmde roll!!)

We've been here several times for dinner, and have ordered catering for parties on several occasions. It is absolutely the best Italian food that you will find in Florida (you'll feel like you're at a deli in Brooklyn). Everything is homemade and cooked to order, and everything that I've ever tried has been incredible. My favorite dish is the pasta... More

Excellent food. Authentic NY italian. Get the sandwich with chicken, fresh mozz and pesto. The cannolis are so great - they do it right (fill them when you order to minimize sogginess).

we were in town for a George Winston concert; found Mozzaella's and were delighted; friendly / attentive service; we asked to buy fresh mozzarella to take home- and not only did they make it up fresh, but let me watch and learn. Good decently priced wine; and our take home leftovers reheated well. and we met the longest standing member... More

Mozzarella Fella is a great place opened lunch in downtown Sarasota just east of Orange avenue. You can watch the owner make fresh Mozzarella, then enjoy it! I ordered a ball of Mozzarella to go and made my own Insalata Caprese when I got home. I also sampled the sausage and peppers which were excellent and a had a connoli which was wonderful.
