The traditional Italian fare at Della Santina’s is based upon Quirico Della Santina"s family recipes growing up in Lucca, Italy and his sheer talent as a chef. Recipes include the popular Gnocchi della Nonna, inspired by Quirico's mother. The fresh fish is always a treat.<br />Quirico’s son Robert runs the front of the restaurant and is responsible for the wine selection. He and his wife, Nicole, started the restaurant’s wine club featuring wines from around the world.<br />Walking through the gated entry and down the brick walkway is like being transported back to Italy. In the warmer months, diners enjoy the patio, covered in grape vines and wisteria, and surrounded by balustrades that are planted with assorted flowers. In the colder months, customers enjoy the cozy atmosphere in the dining room, with tables topped with white linens and fresh flowers. The marble fireplace warms the room, while the sounds of Pavorotti and conversation complete the experience.<br />
