For more than three decades, Casa Italia has been one of Sarasota’s locally owned gourmet markets, a few things have changed…


The current owners, Raj and Nita Mathur purchased the market in 2002. Raj and Nita moved here from England, after vacationing in the Sarasota area. They fell in love with this resort community and wanted to make it their home. They have spent many vacations traveling the world on food holidays, taking in the culinary delights of the places they visited, and discovering new and delicious gourmet treats.


Over the years, this culinary couple has taken the very best of Casa Italia and expanded to include gourmet delights from worldwide culinary ports. 


They invite you to come in and discover your new favorite gourmet treats. Casa Italia is where you’ll #findyouryum!
