L'Orcio was established in 2003 by Francesco d’Amuri and his spouse Alison De Renzi, a couple who moved to New Haven from Florence, Italy to spread the flavors of this delectable cuisine among Americans. While dining in this restaurant you can take in the history of the Thomas Kelly House from the late 1880s, within which the restaurant is located. Relish the flavors of the delightful herbs and sauces inside the elegant restaurant or on the breezy patio. If you are not in the mood to eat, you can just stop by for a few cocktails.
Established in 1922, Nardelli's Grinder Shoppe in Naugatuck serves up authentic Italian grinders, hot or cold. The favorite here is the Italian Combo (capocola, salami and pruzitini) topped with one of their special marinades. Don't forget to tip your sandwich-makers; you'll be applauded with a boisterous "Grazie!" There are three other shops in the area with two in Waterbury and one in Southbury.
