La Mucca Ballerina Offers Tons of Options
If you come here for dinner, you will be spoilt for choice. We recommend getting the antipasto all’italiana for an appetizer with the table, featuring the chef’s selection of Authentic Italian starters and meats. You can also try the burrata fresca with arugula and cherry tomatoes to taste the super-fresh cheese and light glaze. If you want something more substantial, try the calamari with marinara fresca sauce or the rollatini with ricotta, mozzarella, and parmigiano cheese filling.
As a main dish, there are dozens of choices that will leave you happy and ready to head out on the town for the night! If you are a pasta lover, you can’t go wrong with the Ragu Bolognese with slow-cooked meat sauce, lasagna stuffed with cheese, cacio e pepe with fresh ground black pepper and pecorino, or vongole with little neck clams.
For those who would rather try one of the hearty meat dishes, we love the Veal Saltimbocca and Spinach with prosciutto or the Eggplant Parmigiana with marinara, mozzarella cheese, and sprinkled parmigiano cheese.
And of course, you can just get a slice of pizza for lunch to split an entire ‘pie’ for dinner with your table! Some of the best sellers in terms of pizza are the Ortolana with tomato, mozzarella, and a seasonal mix of in-season vegetables, or the Burratina with fresh burrata cheese and mozzarella.
No dinner at an Italian restaurant in Sarasota is complete without a sweet treat to end the night. Grab an Affogato with an espresso shot and the regular cannoli with fresh ricotta, orange zest, and chocolate chips to end the meal on a high note. We guarantee that you and your entire family will love this family-owned restaurant!
