Giada Restaurant Review

: Giada De Laurentiis took great care in assuring that her first restaurant would give the impression of dining in her home. As you enter, you can't miss the lounge, with its cozy living room furniture. The dining room is awash in white, red and brown hues; hardwood and tile flooring; and posters from her grandfather/film producer Dino's movies. The menu offers traditional family recipes and her signature dishes, as seen on her Food Network shows and in her cookbooks. Begin with the charred octopus with shaved fennel, pickled kumquat and snap pea, or opt for the Pecorino tartufo enhanced with apricot preserves. Pastas are well represented by Mandarin risotto with Vialone Nano rice, Mandarin broth and Marcona almonds. Entrées include pan-roasted salmon with summer succotash, a Tuscan rib-eye finished with lemon and sunny side egg, and whole-roasted chicken for two cacciatore-style. The dessert menu contains temptations such as tiramisu, strawberry rose semifreddo and chocolate hazelnut macaron. A wine list of 400 selections is divided into equal parts American, Italian and French, along with a smattering from Spain and Chile.
