“The food was exquisitely rich. As part of the Savor Sarasota promotion, we both got the fixed menu items. I had blue cheese crème brûlée as an appetizer. It was savory with a hint of sweetness from the caramelized sugar on top. The serving size was reasonable but it was so rich we could've easily have split it. For the main course I had beef Burgundy, and for dessert a warm apple tart with caramel sauce and a bit of vanilla ice cream.”

“Quaint all-day eatery offering traditional American fare in a relaxed space with patio seating. Amazing meal. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the filet. Food was cooked superbly. Desserts are all made in house and were delicious. Service was great and prompt. The only reason it's not perfect is that while our server was super busy and very efficient, our drinks ran low/out and we didn't receive refills. Highly recommend....get a reservation!”

“Italian Tradition (IT) is a high end Italian restaurant that is not heavy on pasta and sauce like most American Italian spots. The owners are quite welcoming and the setting is romantic, inside or out in the courtyard. Plus it is just two blocks from home. Reservations recommended. ”
