We were actually quite surprised by the high ratings this place has it was ok but not great. It was also overpriced and the waitress got my dessert order wrong and then tried to argue that I didn’t order what I actually did. She needs to learn the menu and listen. We won’t be back!

This was our second time there and they did not disappoint. We started with calamari again and it was as good this time. I had the cannelloni this time and it was wonderful. I had extended family with me so we were a group of 6, everyone had a different entree and all were very good. My niece had gluten free pasta and said it was also very good. She’s been gluten free for years and has a lot of pasta meals to compare it to (anyone who’s eats gluten free knows not all gluten free foods taste good). We’re looking forward to our next visit!

Food = excellent. We started with the fried calamari, tender and delicious. Salads were fresh, crisp, and dressings were flavorful. My husband had the veal osso bucco and said it was tender and tasted great. I had the linguini and clams – the clams were cooked perfectly, as was the pasta. It was delicious. My husband had the gelato, which I of course tasted, and it was rich and decadent as gelato should be. I had the panna cotta with berries sauce – I was in heaven! We can’t wait to go back!

Not your typical chain "Italian", but rather a home cooked meal for family! Our party of 3 each had different entres and each was outstanding. From the Ravioli all'astice to the Coscia di Maiale Arrosto, to the evening special of shrimp, clams, fish, calamari, octopus in a lightly spicy tomato sauce Dario Leo did a superb job of making each meal a delight for the eyes and taste buds. We won't mention the desserts - I could have made a meal off of those!

Excellent service.

My wife and I were traveling north from the airport In Fort Myers and we decided to stop for dinner. We discovered Rossini Trattoria Gastronomica and we're glad we did. Upon arriving we were seated immediately and our server was very prompt in arriving at our table. After reviewing the wine list I ordered a bottle of Italian Chardonnay which was very nice. for our entrees my wife ordered a Mushroom Ravioli and I ordered Veal Scaloppini and a Caesar Salad to start. The salad was very fresh and quite tasty. Soon thereafter our entrees were delivered to our table abd we were very happy with out choices. My wife said the Mushroom Ravioli was to die for and my veal was delicious as well. Our server provided great service throughout the meal and we left the restaurant very satisfied. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking good Italian food.

The menu is very limited and the food is fair, at best. It may be a 4 in Englewood but it would rate a 1 or 2 in Sarasota. The waitress hovered over our meal ,interrupted our conversation repeatedly, and dressed horribly--where did Rossini find her?

My husband and I celebrated my birthday last night. I booked this reservation on a whim. Our first time eating here and it was excellent! All around... Seated us early, attentive and charming waiter, chicken parmesan was the best I've had and the burrata salad was a wise choice(by our waiter).

We will be going back!

Very nice, quaint restaurant with fabulous food and service. The menu may seem a little pricy, but the quality of the food and the excellent, friendly service makes it worth the price. Highly recommended for couples and families. The resturant is small and the parking is somewhat limited, so make a reservation and park across the street at the mall.
