Profile Last Updated: May 12, 2009
Since bursting on the scene, Vittorio’s has set the standards high for the culinary world. This intimate watering hole is hailed as one of the most authentic Italian restaurants in the city. Homemade dishes are derived from recipes passed down from previous generations. The restaurant’s interior resembles a Venetian eatery. And homemade desserts made right at your table are simply divine.
Ladies who Lunch
Step inside Vittorio’s and you’ll immediately feel whisked away to a glamorous rustic tavern. Gorgeous wood tables and white linen compliment the light airy walls framed with authentic art. On the apps menu, discover fresh mussels drenched in a tomato garlic and sweet basil sauce, along with tasty scallops and shrimp in brandy peppercorn. Caesar salad is loaded with crisp romaine lettuce and freshly grated parmesan cheese in a homemade dressing. Ladies who lunch adore the signature Osteria salad. Who can resist spinach, artichokes, egg, tomato, and mushrooms with a secret dressing?
A Sweet Ending
Vittorio’s main menu is one of the most scrumptious in the city. Homemade seafood-tinged pastas are topped with delicately prepared sauces such as garlic oil and light basil tomato. Hearty portions of risotto are loaded with chicken in a light cream sauce or seafood in a tangy marinara. A handful of seasonal meat dishes focus on fresh game. Among the standouts is the rack of lamb basking in fresh mint, and the scallopine veal with eggplant and melted buffalo mozzarella. Finish off a fantastic meal with a homemade Zabaione made right at your table. This Italian custard, made with egg yolks, sugar, and a sweet Marsala wine, is the perfect sweet ending!
