About Ornella Trattoria Italiana
Ornella Viterale's talkative Italian family was only expected to be quiet during one activity—mealtime. That's because they valued food as much as family, and even now Ornella refers to her relatives' recipes as "culinary heirlooms" that she cherishes.
Ornella was born in Torino and her husband Giuseppe was born in Salerno; to reflect their heritage, their menu includes regional dishes from all over their native Italy. Among their many influences, perhaps the most notable is the Rofrano flour mill Giuseppe's father owned during WWII when grain was scarce; in that spirit, they prepare vegetarian pastas from all sorts of flours, such as buckwheat, chickpea, chestnut, and rice.
Of course, they serve meat as well, including 16-ounce steaks and pork chops stuffed with prosciutto and fontina cheese. And Giuseppe is quite accommodating of those who want to order off menu—the Gothamist recommends asking about a pork-blood pudding occasionally available on Pork Night.
