Taste Summertime in Italy at Sorbillo on the Bowery

Tomatoes are emblematic of two things: Italian food and summer. Sorbillo, which comes from renowned Napolitan Pizzaioli Gino and Toto Sorbillo who also operate eight restaurants in Italy, is ready to stuff you silly with pizza, pasta, and antipasti.

Sorbillo is known for offering Gino Sorbillo’s signature Neapolitan pizzas, but now the restaurant is expanding the menu to include more than just pies. Guests can choose from a variety of new pastas such a homemade Black Squid Ink Tagliolini with sautéed shrimp, clams, calamari, cherry tomatoes, and white wine; Spaghetti alla Carbonara with Guanciale and egg yolk; and Parmigiana Di Melanzane with eggplant, mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, and Parmigiano Reggiano. Other additions include pan-seared Salmon in herb butter served with mashed potatoes and sautéed baby spinach, Rib-eye al Profumo di Rosmarino over a bed of grilled vegetables, and Saltimbocca alla Romana—chicken rolled with prosciutto and served with smoked mozzarella and a creamy mushroom sauce.

Obviously you’ll still be ordering a few signature pizzas. The dough is handmade with Caputo type 0 organic flour then fermented using natural yeast so it is flavorful and easy to digest. Almost all of the pies feature San Marzano tomatoes, but we also love the Margherita Gialla with yellow cherry tomatoes or the Portofino with pesto, Mozzarella Bufala, and Datterino tomatoes. Sorbillo’s pizza is some of the most authentic and delicious in the city, make sure you try it for yourself this summer!
