Fodor's Expert Review Peperoncino

$$$ Orlando Brunch Fodor's Choice

You'll be transported to Calabria at this comfortable Italian restaurant, which is divided into a trattoria and a pizzeria. Chef-owners Barbara Alfano and Danilo Martorano put out a fresh menu of Italian specialties every evening, and the finishing kitchen is in the dining room, so diners lucky enough to snag the few indoor seats (the outside patio has extras) can see Alfano and her team composing the dishes. You might feast on fried pecorino drizzled with honey, a lasagna worthy of a return Orlando visit, pear-and-cheese pasta pockets, wine-marinated duck breast with spicy mushroom risotto, or seared tuna with cauliflower puree. Most desserts are made in house.
