Nov 20 2010

The former chef from Cru- Shea Gallante, is back on the scene! Ciano opened a couple of weeks ago, and I was excited to try it.

The rustic Italian resto is elegant but still cozy. The wood burning fireplace is a nice touch, and fills the room with a sweet and smokey scent. The service was pretty good.

CHOW FAVES:

Let me start with the truffle butter that accompanied the bread. It was so good!

Warm Calamari Salad with shaved fennel, frisee, olives and tomato-herb vinaigrette- Very light- everything blended well.

Veal Meatballs with polenta and truffle pecorino- Delish! The polenta blended well with the meatballs.

Lobster Pot with corona beans, fingerling potatoes, and porcini mushrooms- This was a bowl of goodness! The lobster was tender and the sauce was “lick the bowl” worthy!

Lemon-Rosemary Chicken with a ragu of chanterelle mushrooms and faro- This was a great choice. The chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

SIP: 2 glasses of Cabernet

CHAT: This is a good spot for a date, girl’s mellow night out, business dinner, and a family gathering.

Ciano- 45 East 22nd Street / 212-982-8422
