Tommaso Restaurant

TEL: (718) 236-9883

Owned by Juilliard-scholar and opera-tenor Tommaso Verdillo, this family-friendly Italian restaurant is located in Bath Beach. The interior is marked by a large-scale, Renaissance-style wall painting of an outdoor-dining scene, which hangs above white linen-covered tables and high-backed, black-metal chairs. The menu includes dishes such as rigatoni in vodka sauce, braised lamb shank, and the owner’s take on cheesecake—a more lemony version of the original. The extensive wine list, hand-chosen by Verdillo, varies from affordable selections in the $30 range to indulgences, including a $600 bottle of Amarone.

Insider Tip:

If you see Verdillo, ask him to belt out a ballad—he's been known to sing upon request.
