We did our first TV show at Joso's Restaurant. Joso, himself, was our first guest on our radio show.
In short, for me, it's a place to treasure. As it is for anyone who dines there.
Joso's calamari really is one of the best. Ask Robert De Niro or any of the other Hollywood stars who frequent the restaurant when they're in town.
Once you taste Joso's clams or mussels, others will be thrown back into the sea.
Eating the seafood risotto, you can feel the mist of the sea on your face
To keep the experience close and personal, a plate of whole, raw fish is brought to the table -- a United Nations of fish from everywhere in the world -- and patrons can choose their meal that way.
Joso's grilling recipes are backed by hundreds of years of experience. Fishermen from the Adriatic Sea taught Joso's grandparents about the love from the sea.
Pasta is cooked with the ink of the squid; the sauce takes more than 12 hours to make.
Gamberini, which I highly recommend, are the largest prawn you have ever seen. The taste is beyond your wildest fantasy.
Desserts are in a league of their own here, as well.
Amaretto tartufo is almond ice cream coated with crushed amaretto biscotti, then a sprinkle of amaretto liqueur and whipped cream.
FIVE STARS: (Extraordinary) A one-of-a-kind, world-class experience.
FOUR STARS: (Excellent) Superior. Memorable, high-quality menus and/or savvy service.
THREE STARS: (Good) Solid places that beckon with generally appealing cooking.
TWO STAR: (Fair) Just OK. A place not worth rushing back to. But, it might have something worth recommending.
ONE STAR: (Poor) Below-average restaurant.
