Palladino’s Introduces New Spring Dishes, Tasting Menus And Pasta Night


Chef Luke Palladino is changing things up at his restaurant with some new dining options–one of them being two different four-course tasting menus. The first is the Tuscan Steak Dinner with assorted antipasti, steak, an Italian vegetable stew, and affogato for dessert. The second tasting menu, Tour of Italy, includes antipasto, the chef’s choice of pasta or focaccia, and either chicken, fish, or braciole, plus a scoop of gelato.

There are also 14 new spring dishes on the Palladino’s menu, including grilled middle neck clams, grilled spring vegetable insalata, and grilled beef braciole.

Mondays will now be “Pasta Night” at Palladino’s, a new house-made pasta special. For $15, guests can choose from any of the hand-crafted pasta options on the menu. Here are all of the new dishes and tasting menus:
