Morello Restaurant Review: This Greenwich restaurant, located in a turn-of-the-last-century landmark building with tile arches designed by Spanish architect Rafael Guastavino Jr., features rustic regional Italian cuisine. The soaring space with its dark wood, earth tones and juxtaposition of classic elements and modern accents is the perfect setting for the food. The prosciutto di Parma or soppressata make a nice beginning among the salumi selections. Follow this with a whole trout simply but flavorfully prepared with asparagus, radicchio and a citrus passata. For a more substantial main course, go for the veal Milanese, a scallopine of veal, marinated tomatoes and arugula. The wine list is extensive and accessible with 650 bottles comprising varietals from Italy, France, Spain and the New World. A bottle of the Piedmont Barolo or Tuscan Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet blend pairs well with the rich flavors and textures of Morello’s heartier fare. Selections are also available by the glass, quartino and mezza.
