Fusaro's is definitely a go-to place on Nantucket. Good food for a really good price. The scallop, bacon, potato chowder was flavorful if a little weird looking (not typically creamy chowder). The chicken entree with sausage & hot peppers in a red sauce was reportedly delicious. My linguine with white clam sauce was waaayyy over salted, but I won't let... More

On the way home I find it hard to pass Fusaro's without stopping for a bite to eat or to say hello to the friendly local staff. I love the healthy zuchetti noodles they serve, but after a full day of work, there's nothing like a yummy craft pizza! Some nights we like to sit outside and enjoy the patio,... More

Well attired, casual dining with great and friendly service with New England-Nantucket regional Italian themes. Good blending of adult and family dining atmosphere. Dined just prior to Easter. Arrived at 5:30, but the dining room was full by the time we left. Pasta was freshly made onsite. Great specials and the prices were good. Will definitely return. Will be worth... More

We enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the waitstaff at Fusaro's. Of all the places we could have chosen to dine at on Nantucket, we really felt like having Italian, and we were not disappointed! We will definitely return!

If you are looking for a good family Italian dinner Fusaro's is the place to go on Nantucket. Located out of town but within walking distance of town. Their Pasta Bolognese and side salad was great.. Service was good.

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.
