Fascino, the brainchild of celebrity Chef Ryan DePersio and his family, is a study in modern Italian food, coined "Italian without borders." Ryan's unique approach is apparent, showcasing his years with world renowned chefs Jean Georges Vongrichten and David Bouley. Achieving a Zagat food rating of 26, it states, a "consistent" "favorite" for its "elegant", "innovative" interpretations of "traditional" dishes (and his mom's "alluring" desserts). 16 years and going strong, Fascino was renovated in 2010, completely redecorated with a fresh new look, and has an expanded menu.

    I went to Fascino a long time ago, when it first opened. This was my first time back. We had the Rosie’s Rustico menu, which I was excited to try. We shared the mussels fra diavolo and the meatballs to start. The mussels were tasty but not at all spicy. The meatballs were good. We also had the grilled romaine Cesar salad. This fell a little flat. I ate the eggplant parmigiana. While it was good, it was nothing special. I had the EVOO cake. It was good, but a bit dry. We enjoyed our evening with our friends but I was disappointed in the food. I expected more from such a well-known chef and restaurant.

    We had dinner off the Menu commemorating Ryan’s grandmother’s recipes and the food was outstanding especially the gnocchi. In addition the meatballs and rice balls were delicious. Bring a few bottles of wine from your wine cellar and relax, PS the R&B playing in the back ground wasn’t too bad itself
