A corner hotspot on Lakewood Ranch’s Main Street, the trattoria has ample indoor and sidewalk seating, as well as a bar with big sunlit windows for surveying passers-by.

The Time Factor
It’s a popular lunchtime destination, especially in-season, but ample seats and excellent service make it fairly easy to get a table. Still, the setting doesn’t lend itself to an in-and-out vibe.
The gamut of classic Italian fare, from antipasto to zuppe, including a slew of salads (Caesar, caprese, kale or chopped, starting at $8), pizza (starting at $10) and creative panino, like the grilled salmon with kale and smoked tomato garlic aioli ($13) or the indulgent Trattoria Grilled Cheese, with mozzarella, Gouda and Taleggio cheeses, served with a bisque-like tomato dipping sauce ($12). Many, many pasta options, too.
