Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano

Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano


Here, gorgeously roasted chicken keeps company with giant wedges of roasted potato, big chunks of sausage, sweet red peppers, pearl-sized onions and garlic.  Breast, thigh, wing and leg, all were doused with a sweet, olive oil rich vinaigrette.

So very good.

We’d compare this to our favorite Sunday Dinner, Italian Style.

Do you see that delicately charred square of wood-fired bread?  We’ll give you one guess.  Where do you think it was charred up so beautifully?  Mmmhmm, so, you know it’d be no exaggeration to say that it was a perfect bite of yeasty goodness.  This was a feast for our eyes and our bellies.

So many roasted potatoes, sausage pieces and peppers, we could have made a meal of them.


Calabrian spicy red peppers, roasted chicken and potatoes are drizzled with a red pepper and garlic rich olive oil.  It’s Italian decadence defined.

We devoured each and every one of those bite-sized flavor bombs.

Watching them work causes a Pavlovian reaction.

The giant wooden table offers a clear view into the kitchen.  And, family-sized tables fill the remaining space.  The new space adds plenty of extra parking, too.

Our New York Italian grandmother would ask one question:

Where’s the slow roasted broccoli with lemon?
