Imagine having dinner in a relaxed, Tuscan trattoria with a warm, rustic ambience, authentic Italian food and wine. You don’t have to travel to Italy for this experience- it’s available right here on Melrose Avenue at Torelli Trattoria. Proprietor Andrea Francesco Torelli-Lesky and executive chef Gabriella Torelli announce the opening of Torelli Trattoria in September 2018. This mother-son duo offer cuisine from their native town in Tuscany, as well as other Italian regions such as Campania, Sicily, and Lombardia.
“We pride ourselves on fresh, made-to-order, authentic Italian food,” says Gabriella, who was born and raised in Florence and learned the culture and history of Tuscan cooking from three generations of women in her family. “We maintain the traditions of Italian cuisine, through and through.”
The restaurant imports much of it’s food from Italy and uses USDA prime meats and poultry, wild-caught fresh fish and locally grown organic produce.
