The Penn's Purchase outlet center is a strange place for a Southern Italian restaurant, but here it is. Three months old. Large, somewhat noisy dining room. Open kitchen. Extremely attentive and friendly service. Appetizers run the usual gamut of your neighborhood Italian (mussels in red or white sauce, calamari, salads with or without meats), wide range of pastas, veal, chicken, fish.
Highlights of our two visits: the calamari are done just right. Lightly floured, lightly sauteed, served with slightly tangy sauce and lemon wedges. Ziti Sicilana had strips of eggplant in a
plum tomato sauce. Branzino perfectly grilled, filetted tableside, moist and flavorful.
The prices are right: most appetizers in the $8-13 range, pastas $8-15, fish $18-22.
Very child-friendly, although not many children seen during our two visits, including one Friday dinner at 7PM.
BYO a +....get out that nice Tuscan or Brunello and enjoy.
Next to the Orvis outlet, across from Peddler's Village. A few miles from New Hope and Doylestown. Anxious to hear other Chowhounds' experiences.
