Italian Romance: Date Night At Olio e Piú

New York Smash Magazine  


Capesante in Padella at Olio e Piu

One of our entrées – Luscious scallops over a creamy lemon risotto…mmm! (Capesante in padella: scallops, lemon risotto, fava beans, toasted almonds – $29 at Olio e Piú)


Want to take your next date to Italy for the evening? Just head down to this romantic hot spot in the West Village.

Olio e Piú, an authentic Neapolitan restaurant in New York City, brings delicious cuisine from Naples to the trendy downtown neighborhood.

The comfortable candlelit restaurant is “cozy, familiar and casual,” as Gary Spencer, manager of Olio e Piú, describes it.

With scrumptious pizzas to share, impressive Southern Italian seafood and homemade desserts, it’s a perfect date night locale.

We loved the capesante in padella (a scallops entrée, pictured above).
