Yes, Gino really IS a genius! In The Pear Tree, he has created something more than a restaurant, he’s created a sense of all gathering to eat in his family dining room. That sense of family gathering is not something that just happens, it can only be uniquely “created”. How is it seemingly done? The ease and warmth of Gino’s personal welcome to “his place”; the informality and ambience of the dining room; the sense of pleasure from the staff as they promptly serve both drinks from the bar or food at the table; the chef who “popped out” from the kitchen for a chat; the sense that nothing is too much trouble to provide you with an enjoyable time; the fact that this ‘home’ provides what it says it will provide. Nothing more, nothing less….a genuine Italian menu. Beautifully cooked, beautifully presented, all from a full menu [meat, fish, vegan, pizza] and ‘specials’ that are moderately priced. Amazingly, unlike some restaurants visited, we didn’t have to book weeks in advance. Although pretty busy on the night [added to ambience], a couple of days did it. Fantastico, Gino, grazie mille è torneremo!
