Italianissimo Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Italianissimo offers cuisine from the “best of Italy.” The melanzane rollatine appetizer is a crafty presentation of eggplant, tomato and ricotta, and is almost as filling as an entrée. Fresh seafood such as snapper and sea bass is prepared with wine sauces and a touch of lemon, garlic and capers. Pasta dishes include spaghetti carbonara and rigatoni with smoked mozzarella and Parmesan; meat selections are available as well, and desserts go beyond the ordinary with the restaurant’s signature fruit flambé prepared tableside. There’s an extensive wine list and nice choices by the glass. With only 12 tables, the room is pretty and romantic and small enough that you’ll feel very special dining in this quiet trattoria.
