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 A warm, friendly, family owned authentic Italian restaurant If you like gnocchi then get ready for the best you've ever tasted anywhere! The fish dishes are outstanding and you've got to try the blush sauce. For dessert don't miss the tiramisu. Everything is made on-site to order...simply the best! They have a full bar but allow BYOB without a corkage fee...I guess they want you to be comfortable and enjoy their fantastic food. We'll make this a regular stop. Apr 1, 2014
