Good classic Italian food, but even on a not-so-busy Sunday night our service was poor. Took forever to get drinks and we had to ask several times for certain items. I ordered gluten free pasta and was given gluten free everything eve when I specified I only wanted the gf pasta.

We are a party of 7 - 3 kids, 2 parents, 2 grandparents. We are 4 Vegetarians, 2 omnivores, and 1 kosher-style lifestyles. We were thrilled to find a restaurant on ACK that did not break the bank without sacrificing quality of food, service, and overall dining experience. This family owned restaurant truly provided a warm atmosphere, where attention to... More

This family run restaurant offers a menu based on the owner's grandmother's recipes. They provide family food that sets it apart from the higher end, more "foodie"-focused places on the Island. It has many repeat customers -- definitely give it a try.

We came to this lovely restaurant last summer and made this our first restaurant upon our return this summer. The food is delicious and fairly priced. Although last summer's favorite dish of Lobster Ravioli is not on the menu, we enjoyed the lasagne, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken marsala and chicken parmigiana. The owners are friendly and welcoming to this great... More

My wife is from ACK so everytime we go there to visit her family we always have a mission to have the whole family go one night for dinner there. Coming from Upstate NY and being Italian I know my food. Fusaro's is equal to all the best up here. Try the rigatoni with sausage and chicken.

I suffer from Celiac disease and therefore was glad to see there is an Italian option on Nantucket. Today we got take out from fusaros and specifically asked for the gluten free pasta. One comfort is that fusaros uses schar gluten free penne which is smooth and not ribbed and therefore can be easily distinguished from the gluten containing penne.... More

As the owner of Fusaro’s, as well as the person you spoke to when you returned with the pasta dish you refer to, I’d like to apologize for all of the confusion you describe with your meal. As it turns out, on the night that you called in we had run out of the Schar Brand Gluten Free Penne pasta... More

The food was great and the service was good. We had a new waitress who was training and she did a great job. The food came out quickly and everything was fresh and delicous

We went to Fusaro's for the first time on our recent visit to Nantucket and will definitely go back again. Everyone there was incredibly friendly. I had the chicken Marsala which was decent. The sauce was a bit creamier than I expected at first but it definitely had the Marsala taste. My husband had the beef short ribs which he... More
