THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Sfizi Restaurant Review

: Frank DePasquale's concept focuses on Mediterranean-inspired shared plates with dishes from Portugal, Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey and France. Menu highlights include Italian arancini stuffed with pulled rib meat and saffron rice, Portuguese grilled octopus with giant lima beans, Turkish chicken skewers and Spanish jumbo prawns sautéed with garlic, white wine and chili flakes. We like the Italian bruschetta, Spanish pork ribs and Portuguese mussels. The wine list is almost as adventurous as the food menu with bottles from all over the world (think Greece, Italy, France, Portugal and Spain), along with some Americans available "from the vault": a specialty collection that includes a 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon "Red" Mockingbird from Napa Valley. With a limited dessert menu, you're better off taking a walk down Hanover Street and grabbing a cannoli at one of the nearby bakeries. Sfizi took over the former Mare space on Richmond Street when Mare relocated to new digs on Hanover Street.
