We have long searched for a taste of Italy close to home-and am so glad to say we have finally found it. It is well worth seeking out this gem. We no longer have to long for a trip to Fairfield Co. or New York to taste truely Italian dishes. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, but at the same time is perfect for enjoying a romantic evening out-the main reason we were there on this night.
Tiberio's is a wonderful restaurant. The waitstaff was attentive and knowledgable of all the preparations, and willingly attempted to meet any needs we had.
We ordered the Calamari Peperoncini as an appetizer. It was perfectly tender, and the marinara sauce "like mama makes". The portion was plentiful for my husband and I to enjoy. Be advised-most of the items we saw being served around us were more than plentiful!!
While waiting for our appetizer, we were served a wonderful warm crusty Italian bread with three dipping sauces. There was olive oil, a wonderful garlic spread, and tapenade-a spread made of dried tomatoes, garlic, capers, anchovies, and olive oil, which is made on the premises . There is an extensive wine list, and the staff can recommend a wonderful choice to compliment your meal.
I am a lover of Gnocchi, and these hand rolled, fresh little potato gems were among the best I have ever had. Fresh mozzarella and a wonderful sauce topped off a generous dish that was presented beautifully. It is the details to the little things that I especially appreciate about this restaurant.
My husband enjoyed a generous serving of Veal Marsala. The veal was so tender, he did not need a knife to cut it, and his little sighs between mouthfuls was the sure sign he was in love. Though the portion was more than enough, an empty plate showed he thoroughly enjoyed every bite.
The owners, Tony and his wife April, are very friendly and love to share their knowledge of not only their recipes but of the Naples, were Tony was raised. Tony was trained as a chef there, and brings his knowledge of true Italian food to every dish he makes. The pride and love he puts into preparing these wonderful dishes shows in every aspect of the restaurant.
WE WILL BE BACK-MANY TIMES!!!!
