This place is fantastic! We've been on two occasions and have really enjoyed the service and the quality of the food. The chicken parm, eggplant parm, and fried calamari were all fantastic and are sold at a very reasonable cost. We'll be back!

Wife and I both ate here the other day for lunch. We both had the chicken parm sandwhich and both really enjoyed them. We will definitely be back and will bring our kids. Highly recommended for lunch time and something better than typical chain restaurants.

We adore this place. The #1 is a perfect sandwich. The bread is always fresh & the mozzarella is perfection. We usually go at least twice while we're on vacation here. My kids like the #6 (it's turkey with mozzarella)- very good as well.

Whenever in Sarasota one of our first stops is Mozzarella Fellas they never fail to amaze. Today had a hero of fried thinly sliced chicken cutlet and eggplant with fresh mozzarella and basil pesto if not the best sandwich ever it was close. Of course as side dish thinly sliced fennel salad that is amazing.

Four of us dined here for dinner. Although we have eaten here for lunch and enjoyed the food we never knew they also offered dinner. We were looking for a restaurant where we wouldn't feel rushed as this was a perfect choice. The food was very good and served piping hot. Although I am reluctant to order penne a la... More

We went to dinner with another couple after going to an early movie. Although we had been to lunch there and enjoyed ourselves immensely, this was our first time to try their dinner menu. The two ladies selected off their lunch menus which our server was willing to make changes seamlessly (eggplant Parmesan and chicken Parmesan) and the men had... More

Mozzarella Fella is a great place opened lunch in downtown Sarasota just east of Orange avenue. You can watch the owner make fresh Mozzarella, then enjoy it! I ordered a ball of Mozzarella to go and made my own Insalata Caprese when I got home. I also sampled the sausage and peppers which were excellent and a had a connoli which was wonderful.
