best meatball ever!

This is a great family place, we had kids with us and it was perfect. A few miles out of town so you would need a car. Huge gluten-free menu and seriously the best meatballs I have ever eaten (and I've eaten a lot!)

As long time Nantucket summer residents, we tried Fusaro's a few times when they first opened but we were sadly disappointed with the service and a wine list where our selections were rarely available. After our last visit with our Grandkids, we were convinced we would never return. Well last Thursday as my wife and I were driving to a... More

there are so many restuarants on Nantucket and one night we just wanted pizza and we had seen the ad in the local tourist paper and decided to get out of the hustle and bustle of town and wnt to Fusaro's. We only ordered pizza and a salad to share . The pizza was good but had too many hot... More

Fusaro's is the best balance of great food,service, and atmosphere on the island. I recommend it for a romantic dinner for two as well as for dinner with the kids! A love of good food and a deep respect for family and tradition is the main ingredient.

Visited Nantucket for a long weekend with family and I was so enchanted with my dinner that I came back the following night! On the mainland, Nantucket has a bit of a reputation as being posh, upper-crust, and inaccessible. I'm sure there are restaurants on the island that exude that sort of exclusive attitude, but Fusaro's is not one of... More

We just returned from our first visit to Nantucket and Fusaro's. We found the food and service to be excellent! My husband had the mussels and thoroughly enjoyed them. My son said that the calamari is the best he's ever had (and he's had a lot!). I enjoyed my dinner so much that I ordered the same dinner the following... More

First time traveling to Nantucket, and first time to Fusaro's! It was so incredible we went back for our second night on the island! There were 10 in our group, and everyone from the host (The owner!) to our waiter were incredibly accommodating, attentive and positively fun! When we returned for the second night our waiter remembered our drink favorites... More

The place is lively and filled with real people. The menu is good with a nice variety. The lasagna is excellent. Nice helping of it knocked me out on top of appetizers. If you want a snooty atmosphere, go elsewhere. If you want a nice meal in a family atmosphere at reasonable prices go to Fusaros.

Worst Italian for ever, as a matter of fact worst restaurant I have visited in years. I didn't want to write this as there are so many negative reviews already on here by others and I didn't want to pile on, however, I called 2 days after we had our food, or should I say meal, but no return call...

First off John I'd like to assure you that we at Fusaro's do care, in fact we care very, very much. As the owner of this business I am dismayed that your experience with your takeout dinner was as negative as you claim. I received your phone message and since you stated there was no need to call you back,... More
