This is a busy, popular restaurant which doesn't take reservations. The menu is relatively standard for an Italian restaurant, but all the food is expertly prepared and served. We use Fusaro's as our local Italian restaurant.

A small Nantucket family treasure - on an island crowded with 5 star uber expensive restaurants - Fusaro's is a delightful find - all the recipes Are from Tom's family - the ingredients are fresh and the food is fragrant and mouth watering . Get the picture - go !!!

This is my favorite restaurant on Nantucket. The food is excellent, the prices are reasonable and the people that work there are very friendly and helpful. If you like Italian food this is the place to go.

Very decent Italian food for a change from fish on the island and if you are staying at the lovely Nantucket Inn and Conference Center you can walk there a nice walk on the bike path.

We ordered take out pizza and were happy with the result. When the other pizza places have long wait times this may be your best bet. We were able to pick up our order 45 mins after we called on a busy Friday night.

While at fusaro's I ordered the pollo al Limone chicken. I had to sent it back. The chicken was difficult to chew. Truthfully, I have never ate a chicken cutlet so rubbery. It had to be overcooked. The waitress asked if I wanted something else and I told her "no, I had lost my appetite." I wasn't charged for the... More

Excellent value for the money, especially for Nantucket. There are few affordable family restaurants on Nantucket and this is definitely one of them. We had a terrific meal and great service. Walked in early, about 5:45 and were greeted by the friendly hostess who sat us immediately. We were prepared to wait, but fortunately didn't need to. Had dinner with... More

We were not sure if we should try this place given some of the negative reviews and a couple of people telling us this was just ok, but we decided to go and try it. A bit of a ride out of town but worth it and would go back. The service was great and Jason took care of a... More

Had a nice relaxing dinner with friends. Moderately priced wines with good variety. Our meals Veal parm , veal Marsala, and 2 kinds of pizzas were all delicious and beautifully presented. Desserts were the usual Italian choices, but very tasty. A nice place to take the family with out breaking the bank.
