Formoli's Bistro Restaurant Review

: Formoli's truly is a neighborhood bistro, welcoming diners with inspired, quality food, good wine and a warm atmosphere. Service is attentive and the design modern yet unpretentious. Starters include dates stuffed with goat cheese and pancetta, and pan-seared scallops with local apples, while mains include a skin-on chicken breast with persimmon jam and spicy pork belly, and a honey-glazed salmon with pistachio pesto. The whiskey burger topped with habanero aïoli has a bit of a cult following.
