Sausalido Restaurant Review: Owner Nicholas Mineo, part of a Pittsburgh dining dynasty, warmly welcomes and engages patrons in the intimate environment. A changing show of local art-for-sale enlivens the tidy, understated space. Repeat customers forge a neighborhood bistro ambience. The kitchen takes its lead from California’s focus on fresh ingredients and seasonality, with a menu reaching beyond those of other restaurants in this area known as Little Italy. Starters include smoked Gouda over spinach or carbonara arancini, and for mains, there's a broadened selection of protein-focused plates. The portions are huge, the presentations considerably elaborate. Desserts include lemon-berry cheesecake. Don't forget to BYOB.
