Good, Old-time Italian Restaurant

A good, Italian-American, family restaurant like my parents used to take us to in the 50s. This place is popular with Islanders. The couple next to us had been coming here for over 20 years. I had the lasagna, which was traditional, a little more tomato-paste flavor than I like and not cooked... read more

I can't say enough good things about this Nantucket Italian restaurant. Never mind that the people are lovely and the atmosphere homey and pleasant. The food!! I've eaten Italian food in restaurants all my life and never before gotten so enthusiastic. Their red sauce is second to none. I dream about the Pappardelle Bolognese. The lasagna is among the best... More

Very nice and intimate restaurant. Large entree selection of classic Italian meals. Awesome appetizers. Service was a little slow but the meal made up for that.

The place was filled with locals, as well as tourists, enjoying the food. Conversations overflowed to tables of total strangers. The owner has his mother's recipes for really great tasting and filling Italian food. All the waitstaff was very attending and helped each other out so the meal was served efficiently.

Great find on a rainy night to enjoy Italian cuisine. We started with a caesar salad had the Pollo al Limone and Chicken Siciliano which were prepared with good flavors.

Nana Jean's meatballs!!!!! So many options!! Order as an appetizer, enjoy the fabulous meatball salad, make sure you include them with pasta or treat yourself to a meatball pizza. Order to eat in or to take away! Meatballs at Fusaro's are spectacular and part of every delicious meal I order. For family dining, a night out or entertaining off island... More

This is mostly a locals place. Its in the area called "Mid-Island" by the natives, far from the high prices and obnoxious NYC crowds downtown..There are three Italian restaurants on the Island and I have been to all but one. Fusaro's is the winner. Its traditional Italian. Angela is 100% Italian and my resident expert and she loved this place.... More

Fusaro's is a must visit. Had the Fisherman's Stew. Not only were the lobster,shrimp, little necks etc...excellent, the broth is other worldly. Order the Little Necks appetizer too. Others at the table ordered the meatball salad. The salad is big and good the next day as a left over if you take it home. Yummm!! Call me old timey but... More

Good food, reasonable prices, and casual atmosphere, a taxi drive away! Traditional Italian menu with a few novel items served in the restaurant or outside. The staff were accommodating for my husband's birthday (surprising the table with a b/d dessert complete with serenade from the wait staff).
