Carlo and Tina Narbona have been preparing exquisite meals for nearly 30 years, achieving world-renowned success and notoriety for their handmade Italian specialties in their other international restaurant locations. The Narbonas dreamed of bringing the authentic Italian dining experience to life in Sarasota. After a search for an ideal downtown location, they decided to open their new restaurant in the up-and-coming Rosemary district.
Italian Tradition now fulfills the Narbonas’ dream of serving traditional Italian cuisine with a creative approach tailored to the community’s unique culture. Step through the doors of Italian Tradition and feel Sarasota transform into the coast of Italy.
Embrace the ambiance and enjoy a meal in the intimate family dining room, or step out onto the patio for a romantic evening by the fire. Experience the encapsulating aromas and the delicious flair of authentic, Italian dishes and hand-crafted cocktails.
