The chefs of Ristorante Pavarotti navigate upscale epicurean territory with a menu of traditional Italian dishes, fresh seafood, and a rotation of savory house specials. Baby octopi curl their tentacles around capers and kalamata olives, and sea scallops relax in rich brandy sauce. Dazzle dining companions with a house special of lobster fettuccini draped in saffron-cream sauce or a rousing duel between fork and swordfish. Lemony Puccini veal or chicken steals artichoke hearts with the old-fashioned romance of a wink and a bouquet of asparagus. Dramatic drapes open onto ceiling-high windows that display a charming streetscape at night, and bottles of wine march neatly across wall shelves between gold-framed oil paintings.
Honey-hued drapes span wall-to-wall windows. Polished silverware glimmers in the glow from dangling strings of lights and tiny wall sconces. Ristorante Pavarotti's Italian-born owner, Massimo, knows that little touches like this make a huge difference, whether you’re decorating a restaurant to create romantic ambiance or crafting authentic Italian cuisine. White tablecloths warm beneath veal and fresh seafood in red- and white-wine reductions, and other traditional dishes on the menu ramp up with gourmet ingredients such as artichokes, truffle oil, and pecorino cheese. Between bites of homemade fusilli or lobster and crab ravioli, guests can ask a server to suggest a bottle of wine to transport their senses to Italy, or a genie in a bottle to transport their physical bodies there.
