“Don't miss this downtown treat. La Mucca Ballerina (The Dancing Cow) is a wonderful, family run, authentic Italian restaurant situated in Sarasota's Chic downtown district. There is comfortable seating both inside and outside. We went on a recent Saturday evening and the restaurant was bustling with patrons, mostly locals who know it well. And adding to the festive atmosphere was live entertainment outside the restaurant in the sidewalk dining area. Our party enjoyed Eggplant Parmigiana, Caccio e Pepe, and the special of the day, Porchetta. The porchetta was incredible and served with a delicious side of broccoli rabe. All of the pastas are house made and the Caccio e Pepe was one of the best of ever eaten. The meal was topped off with espresso and delicious handmade desserts. While the food was top notch, the atmosphere of this beautiful family run restaurant made our evening delightful. The owner/chef visited our table and we had a wonderful conversation about the food, about his hometown and the other restaurant they own in Rom, and about family. His daughter, Guilia, was our server and we had a terrific time speaking with her about family and her home in Italy as well. A visit to La Mucca Ballerina will provide more than just an exceptional Italian meal, you will also feel part of their family. If you intend to checkout La Mucca Ballerina (you definitely should), plan ahead and make reservations. This is a very popular place.”
