Giovanni and Concetta Varallo are honored to welcome you to RISTORANTE PESTO. Our meals are prepared in the finest Authentic Italian Tradition, using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. Chef Giovanni Varallo's and Chef Maria Varallo-Facenda's care, dedication and attention to detail transform every dish into a work of art. We hope your stay with us is a "Dining Experience." The kitchen produces a large menu of unique veal, pasta and seafood dishes. The homemade gnocchi are made of potatoes with a glazed cream pesto sauce. Plus, a house specialty is the Portabella alla Parmigiana. It's portabella mushrooms prepared in a rose sauce topped with parmesan and mozzarella cheese along with lump crabmeat. And, if that doesn't get your mouth watering, the veal chop stuffed with prosciutto and fontina cheese heals all wounds. But for the most part, all of Pesto's dishes are something to be said for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The food was excellent and the atmosphere is very cozy and beautifully crafted. They had an extensive list of specials which sensor of wished had been written down as we could not remember them all. It was a real bonus that we could take our own wine, making the visit more affordable. Feb 15, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by When I lived in Rome my favorite dish was Saltimbocca alla Romana. Pesto's Saltimbocca was acceptable but not related to the Roman version. Jan 18, 2015
