      Thank you! That is where we will go - the menu and restaurant look great (just did a quick search and easily found its website).

          Thanks Anonymouse - what a great recommendation. Il Barilotto ( was excellent. We shared the luganiga (sausage) and panzanella salad appetizer. Our entrees were the Long Island Duck and the Pork stuffed with peaches and prosciutto. All delicious..
          After our meal, we took the time to tell the host/maitre d' that this was a first-time visit to Il Barilotto for us and that we were there on a recommendation from a CH'er. He appreciated this very much.
          Again, thanks for replying so quickly to my question!
          Also, thank you applesauce23 for recommending Sapore - we'll try that too when next in the area.

            Glad you liked it, prio girl.

            Thank you for reporting back.

    2. I was pleasantly surprised by Sapore a couple of weeks ago...right across the street from Il Barilotto. Their seafood platter appetizer was lumpmeat crab cocktail I've ever had. Il Barilotto is good, but I prefer Aroma Osteria.
