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). Eleven years and going strong, Fascino has been renovated, completely redecorated with a fresh new look, and has a newly expanded menu.

"My husband and I celebrated our 7th anniversary with a wonderful dinner at Fascino's. Crab cake on roasted beet and celery root salad was delicious although the "super lump" description was a bit of a misnomer (it's hard to impress my Eastern Shore MD native husband). I had the Ramp crusted halibut on baby carrot and English pea risotto which was perfectly cooked. My husband's filet mignon was also just the right doneness but a bit underseasoned. We shared a yummy warm blueberry bread pudding with a special request side of chocolate sauce for dessert. They surprised us with anniversary wishes decorated on the plate and a thoughtful handwritten note from the owner."
