Nunzio Ristorante Rustico - nunzios Perrier

"Nunzio Patruno's solo enterprise is just a few minutes from downtown Philadelphia, and it is quite a place. Done to resemble a piazza in Italy, it has stucco walls in a pale adobe color that suggest doorways and windows surrounding the main square. There is even a dome painted blue with clouds, so it feels like daylight all the time. Murals show the quaint trulli (little white conical houses) that are native to Apulia, Patruno's birthplace. The food, ingredient-driven and true to tradition, is topnotch. Whether it is fish or meat, everything is fresh and delightful. Bring your best Barolo and enjoy" - Gayot

One of Philadelphia's all-time great chefs has found a new home only minutes from the City. You might remember Chef Nunzio Patruno from his twenty-some masterful years at the Monte Carlo Living Room on South Street. The man has brought tons of Pennsylvania license plates to the delightful town of Collingswood, New Jersey, and you can even get there on the High Speed Line (one of the great benefits of dining in the Garden State).

Nunzio's food is simple, fresh, and affordable, and that's what great Italian cooking is all about. His colorful and romantic restaurant is patterned after the restaurants of his hometown, Castellana Grotte. The chef personally buys his own produce, and so much of it comes from the farmer's market located in Collingswood. The chef makes his own bread and desserts, and like all the restaurants of Collingswood, it's BYOB all the time.
