Main courses include Petto Di Pollo Marsala – chicken breast with seasonal mushrooms, Marsala wine, demi-glace, and fresh thyme.

Finish the meal with a gelato, Cannolo Siciliano – ricotta, chocolate chips, orange zest, pistachio, and seasonal fruit, or panna cotta frutta di bosco: Nunzio Ristorante’s signature eggless custard with candied orange, seasonal berries, and raspberry coulis.
Start your dinner with the Taglliere di fromaggi, an Italian cheese board with green olives, Calabrese, walnut halves, and drizzled organic honey. The salsiccia al pugliese gives you a taste of Italian sausage with bell peppers, onions, garlic, and fresh tomato sauce. You can also enjoy a variety of salads, along with pasta e fagioli all Toscana – a Tuscan vegetable soup with cannellini beans and tubetti pasta.
Choose the ravioli of the day, Tagliatelle alla Bolognese – a classic Bologna meat sauce over hand cut tagliatelle pasta and parmigiano reggiano or go for something a little more. Penne Baresane features penne pasta, Italian sausage, bell pepper, onions, spicy tomato sauce, garlic and oil, and araganati crisp, while Fusilli Calabrese al Cinghiale is an artisan fusilli topped with slow-braised wild board shoulder in a red wine tomato sauce.
Choose from a variety of chicken and veal dishes, like Petto di Pollo Marsala – a chicken breast topped with seasonal mushrooms, Marsala wine, demi-glace, and fresh thyme, or vitello piccata: loin of veal medallions, garlic, capers, lemon juice, and white wine demi-glace. For something lighter, choose the Pesce del Giorno, the fish of the day featuring local and Mediterranean fish.
Wrap up the meal with delicious Italian favorites like tiramisu or try the espresso crème brulee – double cream custard, espresso coffee, and caramelized raw sugar, or the bombato cioccolatino: Nunzio Restaurant’s signature hot chocolate souffle cake served with vanilla gelato. There is so much to choose from you’ll need to come back again to try more!
