Pelago Ristorante is a stunningly elegant restaurant that will steal your heart because of the enchanting setting that Owner/Chef Mauro Mafrici’s wife (and Architect), Kimberly Anguil Mafrici, has created.
Artistically prepared by Chef Mauro and bursting with flavor, the entrees will indulge your senses. Chef Maruo cooks in such a way that each ingredient’s character is not lost, but found, and then maximized. My personal favorites are any of the lamb dishes, and their homemade gelato is to die for! Just recently enjoyed the Veal Ravioli with Pistachio sauce and Tiramisu – magnifico!! This is truly fine Italian dining, verging on paradisio. The pride and efforts of this family venture are obvious everywhere.
* Romantics take note, there is a booth on the other side of the fireplace that is extremely private and very cozy! (This is our favorite booth #50, see below.) In the warmer weather there is an al fresco area for dining. The service is very attentive and the hospitality is genuine.
Their intimate bar is just perfect for a nightcap, after the theater or other rendezvous because the ambience and dim lighting is so romantic.
Arrive at this extraordinary ristorante, unwind and be prepared to be dazzled!
