Pizza, pasta and seafood lovers may give little Italy the boot after trying out this midtown hotspot. With a motto like “We love to cook what you love to eat,” it is little wonder that Pallucci has become such a popular dining destination. At first glance it may seem strange that a restaurant with such an obviously Italian name serves items such as citrus maple glazed organic Atlantic salmon. But it all makes perfect sense if you understand the premise that shapes this eatery’s menu: it’s been tailored to reflect customers’ cravings. Though classic Italian fare takes centre stage here, anything that tickles the taste buds could land on the Pallucci menu.
What used to be an exclusively prix fixe menu is now a menu with more flexibility. You can now choose your appetizers, your entrées and your dessert as you please. To get you started, there are many appetizers that will catch your eye. The usual soup of the day and baby greens are featured here, but you can also try some more unique selections like bruschetta pizza with fresh roma tomatoes, basil and garlic or beef tenderloin with oven roasted capers, asiago cheese, extra virgin olive oil and a balsamic vinegar. For mains, there are the usual pizzas and pastas, but the chef loves to change the menu depending on the season. Check the daily specials to see what Neal’s cut is for the day.
This midtown restaurant with a downtown feel is an elegant mom and pop establishment. Pallucci also boasts a private, second-floor dining room, which is perfect for parties and private functions.
