$20 for $40 Worth of Italian Fare

The menu includes a grilled calamari starter with herbed olive oil ($9.50) and entrees such as ricotta gnocchi with shrimp in cream sauce ($16.50), thinly pounded and breaded pork chop Milanese ($18), and tilapia sautéed in lemon, white wine, and capers ($19).

Salento Restaurant

At Salento Restaurant, his second BYOB venture, chef Davide Faenza draws on his roots in the region of Puglia, on the heel of the Italian boot, to fill a menu of authentic Italian fare. Home to “some of the finest raw ingredients in Italy,” according to a 2007 Philadelphia Weekly review, Puglia is known for its fresh seafood and simple pasta dishes. At Salento, servers carry in homemade gnocchi, sautéed fish filets, and other entrees that do justice to this tradition. After popping the last golden raisin from a balsamic-glazed chicken breast, guests can admire the dining room's glowing chandeliers, blue velvet curtains, and enormous mirror reflecting hungry pizza-delivery boys peeking in the front windows.
