Restaurant Week is always a touch and go affair. It gives you a chance to try a new place at a reasonable price but more often than not, the experience leaves a lot to be desired. This was not the case at Nunzio’s.

The room itself is very nice – the service friendly and professional and the food extremely good both in quality and quantity.

Dinner started with a very good Autumn Ratatouille Crostini. With 3 items to chose from for our second choice, we picked the Butternut Squash Cream Soup with Jumbo Lump Crab Meat; it was delicious with an abundant amount of crab. The Tuna Carpaccio with Baby Arugula was our other choice and was a generous amount of thinly sliced tuna with shaved Parmigiano and again delicious. (For my personal taste, I could have done without the sliced long hot peppers in the dish.)

Both entrees were also delicious – Grilled Fillet of Branzino over braised fennel in a saffron sauce and a fairly large Braised Lamb Shank over pumpkin gnocchi in a Gorgonzola cream sauce.

We don’t usually get dessert but it being restaurant week the Pumpkin & Cinnamon Panna Cotta was included and again was a hit.

All this for only $35 per person before tax & tip. (BTW: It’s a BYO.)

We are looking forward to returning to try things from their regular menu.

Nunzio and his staff surprise me with unique and fantastic entrees. No matter how unusual the specials sound they never cease to amaze me. The first few times I would hesitantly sample a new dish like: skate, fried artichokes, and dandelions to name a few. This past Sunday we tried and were delighted by the delicately breaded and fried stuffed zucchini flowers. They were so good that we ended up trying to steal them from each others plates. Don't be afraid to try something new you could be very pleasantly surprised.

Love this place! Always excellent food and service. The Branzino is my favorite dish but the appetizers are just as good and soooo filling! Chef Nunzio never lets his customers down! He is always available to meet and discuss his many delicious entrees! Bon Appetito!

We went to Nunzio's on a Saturday night in August. We had reservations and we were seated quickly despite the large crowd. Everything we tried on the menu was delicious. Portions were a good size. I highly recommend this restaurant
