Chef and owner Gaetano Turi has fed his Italian feasts to such celebrities as Bill Cosby and Brad Garrett inside Barolo Ristorante. The Italian-born Turi learned his culinary skills with formal training in Rome, and now stamps his own twists on classic dishes, including homemade gnocchi stuffed with spinach and risotto drizzled with merlot. Fresh seafood, flown in daily, transforms into bay scallops dunked in a brandy cream sauce and New Zealand orange roughy baked with garlic and white wine. The restaurant itself oozes of old world Italian. The dining room’s recessed ceiling is painted in gold and red hues, while the bar sits under golden tin-plated ceiling tiles. Warmly lit chandeliers and tabletop candles and strobe lights offer a cozy dining experience.
