Your host, Roberto Ercolani, comes to Sarasota from Rome, Italy, bringing the best and most delicious authentic Italian dishes to this area. He has been in the restaurant business since his youth. As the owner of CasAntica, Roberto provides a refined and unique Italian culinary boutique atmosphere.
The restaurant occupies a 1926 historic home nestled among the trees on the edge of downtown Sarasota. Patrons may choose indoor or outdoor dining (weather permitting), including our lovely rooftop seating area, tucked in under the branches of the old live oak trees that surround the building. The perfect setting... exclusive, romantic, and intimate.
In true Italian tradition, this beautiful, small historic house allows us to greet each of our patrons each evening. Our goals are to provide a personalized dining experience to everyone that enters our home, to share our love of Italian cuisine by providing a freshly prepared, delicious, authentic Italian meal, and more importantly, to have fun doing what we love most... serving people. CasAntica is a place to gather with old friends, meet new friends, and enjoy a beautiful dining experience!
At CasAntica, each and every dish is prepared upon request with tender loving care, says Roberto. Our food is not pre-cooked, ensuring the highest quality and fresh flavor every time. Because we strive to provide only the freshest meals for our patrons, please be patient and allow the time needed for your meal to be cooked to perfection. Enjoy a glass of wine while you enjoy the atmosphere... We are confident that you will be delighted with your entire dining experience. "
