Whether it’s your first or one-hundredth time coming to Sardelli for dinner, the staff will treat you like a regular. Contributing to this convivial atmosphere is the fact you’re eating in a four-story house that underwent a $3 million dollar renovation five years ago and is now both cozy and contemporary. What’s more, the eatery is a family-run business and owner Fulvio Sardelli Jr. is both the owner and the chef. How nice not to have to decide between pasta and steak. At Sardelli, it’s practically a must to order one of each. Get the cavatelli with braised veal shank in a truffle butter and veal broth as your primi, and order a USDA Prime certified Black Angus eight-ounce filet mignon for your secondi. Another one of Sardelli’s hits is the fried calamari in a delicious spicy tomato sauce. There’s nothing pretentious here, only home-style cuisine in the most inviting of settings.
