Living in Manhattan, as I do, and traveling to Italy yearly, I pride myself on knowing really good Italian food. Nino is an outstanding chef.....his amazing unique appetizers.....eggplant timbale...peppers stuffed with " MAGIC"..........I could go on and on. His pastas... .ravioli stuffed with pumpkin....or squash ....or his superlative Bolognese sauce. This is not a restaurant for baked ziti or chicken parmesan...this is a restaurant that sets the bar with incomparable home made Italian food. Nino is the consummate host he makes you feel welcomed "at home" . He wheels his tray displaying the evenings offerings....appetizers...pastas...fish etc....., as they do in the finest restaurants in Italy, and describes his selections with a love and passion that you will share with him when you taste his creations. Rustico Italiano is truly a Gem.
