The Deal

$25 for $40 worth of Italian food

The menu includes signature dishes such Grandma Joanie's hand-rolled meatballs and spaghetti, hand-breaded veal topped with prosciutto, provolone, and mushroom scampi sauce, and the mussels Angelo sautéed with anchovies, apples, white wine, and lemon.

Desiderio Italian-American Grill

The chefs at Desiderio Italian-American Grill hand-roll meatballs, sprinkle spices into the house marina, and fill plates with ravioli shells. They craft every dish using the family recipes of owners Rick Marrero and Victor Rodriguez, creating ricotta cheesecake and Grandma Joanie's meatballs, which blend veal, pork, and beef. What isn't crafted in-house is still handmade—the cannolis arrive fresh from Artuso Pastry, a bakery in the Little Italy neighborhood of the Bronx. The restaurant's dining space extends to an outdoor patio, which shades patrons with an awning, trees, and a cumulus cloud tethered to the roof.
