GianMarco's Restaurant Review

: Giani and Marco Respinto grew up in their father's restaurant in New York, and when they opened this charming bistro, Giovanni came out of retirement to work with them. Old-school favorites such as eggplant Parmigiana and lasagna rival what mamma made. Caesar salad with grana and garlic croutons adds crunch to the meal. Among starters are fiocchi pasta purses stuffed with pears, Gorgonzola and walnuts nestled in sage butter and prosciutto. Carnivores will savor the veal chop Milanese served with lemony chopped salad and a fried egg. Meanwhile, the pan roast comprises chicken, shrimp, clams and sausage with white beans. A sweet finale might be the apple crostata with cinnamon gelato drizzled with caramel sauce. The thoughtfully selected wine list favors Italy and California, with a scattering from other parts of the world, many friendly to the pocketbook. In addition to wines by the glass or bottle, some selections are available by the quartino. Be sure to check out the wine shop in back and ask about the monthly wine dinners.
