THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Provino's Italian Restaurant Restaurant Review: Sometimes a classic southern Italian meal is all that will do, and thats when you should check out one of the five Provinos locations. These comfy, cozy trattorias are dimly lit and tend to be nice, quiet havens to relax over dinner. Youll find all your favorites here, including appetizers such as fried ravioli, clams oreganata, and pasta and fagioli. Before your entrées are served, you will be presented with a big bowl of fresh salad to share along with a basket of rolls dripping with garlic butter. If youre really hungry for pasta and want to sample several, go for the pasta lovers special---four different pastas with meat sauce, meatball, sausage and sautéed mushrooms. Among the dozen or so other pastas are baked ziti al mondo (tubes with sausage, ground beef, ricotta, meat sauce and mozzarella), cannelloni Genovese (pasta stuffed with ground veal, spinach and cheese), and some lighter selections such as vegetable lasagna and penne pasta primavera. Veal fans will appreciate the five preparations offered (Parmigiano, marsala, Diana, a la roma and francese). Seafood is abundant, too, including salmon on angel hair in white wine, red snapper dipped in egg and sautéed in lemon butter wine sauce, and three shrimp options. The desserts, too, lean to the traditional including cannoli, spumoni, and tiramisu. Wine selections are extremely limited, with only seven choices beyond the house red, white and blush.
