Went with some friends who were visiting me and was very disappointed in the food. The sauce in the lasagna was too sweet. Rather tasteless. Others had pizza and sauce based dishes and no one finished - just saying it was fine. I will give it another chance as it is a nice little place with friendly staff.

This restaurant is a fair Italian restaurant for the island of Nantucket. Certain dishes I really like. The fried calamari is one of my favorite preparations. Their chicken Parmesan and certain pasta dishes are good. However, the pizza is average. (Good for the options on Nantucket, but if you're used to eating pizza in New Haven or New York, it's...

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 !!!

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
