Mare Bello Restaurant Review: Mare Bello's dining room has ample windows affording a generous view of the sea; white tablecloths grace the simple wood tables. The well-conceived Northern Italian menu offers a salad of Belgian endive with Gorgonzola and extra virgin olive oil and starters such as Sicilian meatballs made with Angus beef accompanied by raisins, almonds, scallions and garlic in a marinara sauce. Antipasto freddo, an array of cold appetizers including buffalo mozzarella, vine-ripened tomato, prosciutto, Parmigiano, dry sausage, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted peppers, is ideal for sharing. We also recommend the grilled pork chops topped with potatoes, peppers and mushrooms in a white wine sauce. Appropriate as lighter fare is the chicken breast cutlet, pan-seared in fresh herbs, garlic, port wine and a balsamic sauce. Desserts are comprised of American and Italian classics like cheesecake and tiramisu. The wine list featuring regional selections complements the menu.
