La Violetta Rustic Italian Emilio and Rosaria on MOPED

Many of our friends and customers love to practice “fare la scarpetta,” which is an Italian expression meaning to bend your bread into a little shoe and using it to mop up the last of the sauce in a dish. This implies that everything on the menu is good to the last drop.

We invite you to join us so you can experience delicious, authentic northern Italian food, here in Sarasota.
