No. Five-O Shore Road Restaurant Review

: Gracious hospitality is a significant part of the dining experience at No. Five-O Shore Road, where chef James Walter offers regional Italian cuisine. Owners Donato Tramuto and Jeff Porter extend European charm in this small but lively resort town as they mingle with guests, many of them regulars, in the sunny dining room. Start with little plates to share, like escargots with shallots, prosciutto, Pernod, mâche and Parmesan or perhaps steamed Maine mussels with melted leeks, white wine, garlic and tarragon. The menu changes seasonally. Gnocchi is a must; in winter it’s ginger gnocchi served with acorn squash, chestnuts, bloomed cranberry and spiced squash. Entrées have included Long Island duck breast, crispy rabbit loin filled with rabbit sausage, and baked risotto. End with panna cotta in whatever version is available. There’s also a great martini selection, which includes a coconut ginger martini with house-made ginger purée, coconut rum, pineapple juice or toasted coconut, or ask about the martini of the day.
