Morello Restaurant Review: Morello, located in a 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 an appropriate setting for the food. Choose a trio of salumi from selections such as mortadella and speck. Pastas like braised beef ravioli with brown butter, Parmigiano-Reggiano, arugula and mushrooms, and fresh garganelli in a tomato-meat ragù with herbed ricotta make for good main courses. 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 the kitchen’s heartier fare. Selections are also available by the glass, quartino and mezza.
