Salute is doing a great job - the patio offers a lot of distance, the service is personal and lovely. And as always the food was delicious. My friend had the Branzino and ate every bite. I had the Vegan pasta and it was so good. I think they are the best option downtown for this crazy Covid time-great food and service with lots of outdoor space. – Happy in Sarasota
We have dined at this restaurant many times and have always been very pleased with the service, food and atmosphere. Saturday 7/11 was my birthday and the dinner was superb. A big plus was the lovely music that was being performed. FYI: All tables were widely spaced apart outside, the staff all wore masks and kept an appropriate distance. – Chasman
Loved this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Highly recommend it if you’re in the area and are looking for great authentic Italian food. I can’t wait to revisit on my next trip to Sarasota! -Lisa K

About Bevardi's Salute! Restaurant
Bevardi’s Salute! Restaurant is a chef-owned and operated, local Italian artisan restaurant in downtown Sarasota, located at the corner of Lemon Avenue and First Street, 23 North Lemon Avenue, Sarasota, Florida 34236. Call 941.365.1020 any time for information or reservations.
Chef Laszlo, his wife Ottilia, and their two daughters moved to Sarasota in 2010 to introduce Sarasota to their restaurant concept of house-made pasta, authentic Italian food, and fresh seafood with table-side service, beautiful ambiance, and tasty food.
Bevardi’s Salute! Restaurant is an award-winning, family-friendly local favorite offering a full bar, a charming indoor dining ambiance, nightly Happy Hour at the Bar from 4-6pm, Early Bird Special for $26.95 from 4-6pm, and live music nightly on the breezy outdoor patio. Laszlo Bevardi studied in Eastern Europe - from Hungary to Germany - and two years traveling as a Chef through the Caribbean, before settling in the US to open Bevardi's Salute Restaurant in 2010. The downtown Sarasota locale is famed for its home-made pasta, prepared daily, its whole fish dinners that are often imported and filleted table-side, and its freshly-picked produce from local farms.
Q: What attracted you to a career in food?
A: My love of food started when I was a child. My parents were telling me, as soon as I grew up, that I was always hanging out in the kitchen. I always wanted to make dough and pasta and cut vegetables. I just enjoyed being in the kitchen instead of playing with my toys. When I finished school, I had to kind of pick my area of study, and it was natural for me to go to restaurant and hotel school.
Q: You have such an international background. What led you to Sarasota?
A: I grew up until I was 19 in Hungary and went to restaurant school there. Then I went to restaurant school in Berlin, Germany I also went to the Royal Caribbean cruise line. My partners and I had restaurants in Philadelphia and we wanted to open somewhere warmer, so we opened Bevardi's Salute!
Q: Why is Bevardi's Salute! Restaurant is known for its seafood?
A: I think what people like is we do a great job with whole fish. I always try to find local, sustainable seafood. I have three or four different seafood purveyors and I always try to check around to get the best quality on the table. I also import fish from the Mediterranean, from Italy and Greece. It comes fresh on a bed of ice. They fly it over to Miami and I get it the next day at the restaurant. We do a whole Dover sol from Norway the same way. We prepare the fish with the skin and everything, and we filet it table-side. I always prefer to cook the fish whole.
