Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

You can practically hear Rosemary Clooney's Mambo Italiano roaring in the background as the Scotto family waxes nostalgic about Sunday dinners in their third cookbook. Family, meatballs, Mom's sauce—all are evoked in these pages, both in the boisterous prose and the loads of photos of the Scotto family, which owns and operates the Manhattan restaurant Fresco by Scotto. The book begins with some entertaining basics, offering advice on, for example, keeping dinner conversation flowing (avoid religion and encourage people to talk about themselves). Like this recommendation, most of the Scottos' counsel is pretty boiler-plate, though it does teem with Scotto family attitude (which generally falls somewhere between corny and faux-tough). The menus and recipes, however, are tantalizing. On Easter Sunday, the Scottos suggest Zucchini Blossoms Stuffed with Herbed Ricotta Cheese, and Grilled Flank Steak Vegetable Kabobs. On Christmas Eve, Crab Cakes, pasta with rock shrimp, Steamed Maine Mussels and Manila Clams headline the menu. The recipes dance between unusual and classic; appetizers range from Grilled Pizza Margherita to Sweet Potato White Bean Soup; salads include Watermelon and Red Onion, and Fried Oyster. Pastas, too, are wide-ranging: there's classic Bucatini alla Amatriciana, as well as the more uncommon Whole Wheat Penne with Braised Beets, Gorgonzola Cheese, and Walnuts. Photos. (Oct.)

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book with wonderful Italian recipes. For some reason, this book is not available in our area, but it was well worth the wait. I've already tried several of the recipes and they've all been absolutely delicious. The instructions are easily understandable, the ingredients' list is precise and the photos are beautiful, although there could be more. One for each recipe would be nice. But if you are looking for great Italian comfort food and wonderful smells coming from your kitchen - this book will do the trick.

I bought this book based upon what I saw on the Ellen DeGeneres show. However, the recipes that I wanted, and they indicated were in this book weren't. But there are still plenty of good recipes in this book that are worth buying and trying out.

I bought this book based on what I saw on the Tony Danza Show. Unfortunately, the main reason I bought it, the recipe was not in this particular book, it was a trifle that I wanted to try out. But the rest of the recipes are very good. I think that next time the Scotto's are showing their recipes and that a particular book has these recipes in them, they should be very honest about it. Both my mom and I are were very disappointed for this very reason in the book.
