Dinner near the Nantucket Inn

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).

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

Three of us waited 35 minutes for a table and then had a meal that was not up to mainland standards. The chicken parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana were just o.k. but did come with a small salad and pasta and the bread was very good.

I'd like to say its a gem in the rough . Its a great place to go when you want to get out of town. My 19 year old loves the pasta as I love the Parm. Unfortunately many other are learning about this place to eat!

I try to have dinner at Fusaro's everytime I visit Nantucket. It's simply great Italian food - every visit is better than the last!

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

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.
