About this Business
From Our Editors
Helmed by owner Russell Bellanca and executive chef Mirco Grassini, Trattoria Cinque's spacious, exposed-brick dining areas host fire-engine-red chairs and walls lined with illuminated bottles that cast their golden glow on handcrafted dishes pouring from the kitchen. Italian-raised Bellanca set out to pay homage to his love of the country, which he often visits to conduct business with local Italian food growers. Sharing the same love of Italian cooking, Milan-born chef Grassini developed the menu of authentic Italian eats, perfecting even the simple dishes such as spaghetti pomodoro, whose quality he insists relies on using the best ingredients and a special pasta-shaping centrifuge. Together, the two have developed a partnership of more than 10 years, combining twin passions for Italian experience, authenticity, and cuisine to warm bellies and hearts.
