Diners feast from a menu of family recipes, including Bridgelune, a Sicilian dish of tenderized steak rolled in cheese and spinach ($17.95), pecan-breaded red snapper ($17.95), spaghetti with house-made meatballs or spicy italian sausage ($8.95), and veal saltimbocca in a rich mushroom sauce ($20.95).
Michael Salerno celebrates the rich flavors of Italian food with recipes culled from the books of his beloved grandmother, Carmela, using never-frozen ingredients to create delicious steaks, seafood dishes, pastas, and salads. His restaurant’s softly lit dining space recalls a family dining room, replete with flowery wallpaper, old framed photographs, and relatives who don’t remember how old you are. Diners gather at the main rooms’ tables or in high-backed booths for generous helpings of pasta, which bear ladlefuls of thick, savory sauce and juicy house-made meatballs, or break bread in the spacious banquet hall.
