Nuvolari's Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Crisp white tablecloths, exposed brick walls, big windows and a bottle of olive oil on every table contribute to the atmosphere at Nuvolari’s. Tazio Nuvolari, a famous 1930s-era Italian race car driver, inspired the restaurant’s name. We recommend the house-made potato gnocchi with fresh shrimp and Romano cheese; the braised Italian sausage and shrimp; and the roasted duck with a tart Bing cherry glaze. For dessert? House-made rum cake that fairly melts in your mouth, but note that cannoli are made and stuffed to order. The comfortable, antique-looking bar is a locally popular watering hole good for an apéritif or quick nightcap. The wine list is complex and well-organized; while not extensive, it covers all bases with selections that are generally in the mid $20s-$50 range. Whereas most restaurant lists are overstocked with Cabernet Sauvignon and lack hearty Zinfandels, Nuvolari’s offers four to five Zins, including the classic Ravenswood.
