the best new restaurant on the island

Well, not that new - it's been here for a couple of years now, I think. It is a wonderful place to have dinner if you want really good Italian food. Not gloppy americanized Italian, and not foo foo fancy tiny portion Italian. It's just right! Great menu, great service, nice atmosphere. There are... read more

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...

We have eaten here about four times and I must admit the food has become much better since it's early days but there are always at least two dishes that we order that are subpar at best. One of the biggest problems we have encountered is the use of salt, usually our dishes have been greatly over salted but then... More

We visited Fusaro's on the recommendation of a woman we met on the ferry to Nantucket. What a great recommendation it was. We actually went to Fusaro's twice in our 5 day visit to Nantucket. the food is outstanding and unique. The service is excellent. The atmosphere is very pleasant and there's a good bar scene going on as well.... More

My wife and I are on Nantucket for three months, so the first question we asked the first neighbor we met was, "Where's the good food?" He suggested Fusaro's right away, making himself a friend for life. We're past the high season, so there was a table available without a reservation. We ordered the (sort of) house red by the...

We visited during "shoulder season" and still found this popular restaurant packed. We were told the wait would only be 10 minutes and they were right on time. The drinks were served promptly and they were very generous. The food was excellent and was served quickly. The prices also were a pleasant surprise considering what might have been expected "on...

My wife, daughter and I ate at Fusaro's this past Friday night and absolutely loved it. I grew up in an Italian family and was born and raised in the New Haven, CT area where we have some of the best pizza in the country. I was very pleasantly surprised at how good Fusaro's pizza was. We ordered a pizza... More

Great Meal on a very nice outside patio. Primo pasta and sauce. Best calamari appetizer I ever had. Get there early.

We loved this place! Food was amazing, our server was attentive, the food was timed well and portions were perfect and well priced. The owners even stopped by to ask how our meal was (nice touch). We ordered out pizza on another night and it was great as well. And you really have to try the mussels, to die for...
