FERRARO’S INTRODUCES VIBRANT SEASONAL DISHES, CICCHETTI MENUTO CELEBRATE SPRING
Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar welcomes guests to celebrate spring with new seasonal dishes added to the menu. Notably, a brand-new section of the menu features eight “cicchetti”—Italian small plates inspired by snacks served traditionally in Venetian “barcari” or wine bars. Enjoy the longer days and warmer temperatures with one of the dishes specially prepared incorporating fresh seasonal flavors to accentuate the best ingredients of spring.
“When the weather becomes warmer, small plates like our new, authentic cicchetti are appealing,” explained Gino Ferraro, owner, Ferraro’s. “Our Chef Francesco DiCaudo has created a tempting menu that we look forward to sharing with you. Perhaps pair them with a sparkling Lambrusco—this light, sparkling red wine is a popular accompaniment in Italy during warmer months and is especially amazing with our new gnocco fritto from the cicchetti menu.”
During this most temperate season of the year, guests also have the option to dine at Ferraro’s partially covered outdoor patio with ample seating. The plush seating and open-air environment creates an inviting ambience—perfect for enjoying dining al fresco.
