Paulino is the chef and Tony Paulino is the host. OK? Paulino's
Italiano Classico is the citadel of Italian restaurants in Rochester.
Located in a historic Landmark Mansion, it was the home of the
first Mayor of Rochester, Jonathon Child. This place is really
beautiful. They describe it as casual but you'd fell like a
slob in everyday days here.
service was more than attentive. We started with a nice bottle
of Banfi Chianti and an order of Pancetta Scallops - pan seared
jumbo sea scallops wrapped in pancetta served in a Mediterranean
oyster sauce for 9.95. This was fantastic. The bread they served
was from Martusciello's.
You know that is the best Italian bread in the city. And the
dipping oil was made with with sun
dried tomato pesto. We tried to pace ourselves.
salad was called Pane Insalata with organic mixed greens tossed
in balsamic vinaigrette with grape tomatoes,
mandarin orange segments, olives, almonds served over provolone
crostini. Delicious! The space between the salad and entree
course was punctuated with a palette cleanser of Italian Ice
entrees we ordered Pagini and Chicken over fettuccini and Lobster
Raviolis. Both very nice.
heard that this place was the old Edwaards at the end of their
run. We bought a couple of these gift cards and we still have
$29 left on one. I hope they stay in business long enough for
us to cash it in. Mark Danials, who sings opera as he waits
tables at 2 Vine, sings here on his off nights. You will feel
like you are in a movie.
This will be a dead link now.
I lost that $29.
