Regalo Trattoria in Northport offers a wide variety of authentic Italian cuisine. Owners John Terrani and Nunzio Napolitano took over the Northport pizzeria last year, and are thrilled to bring Old World Italian recipes to the community. With John’s background as a jeweler and Nunzio’s experience in kitchens since he was a boy, the two had an opportunity to take over Regalo and went for it.
Coming from a family of cooks in Italy, Nunzio designed the Regalo menu with family recipes. After pursuing a business management degree, he honed his culinary skills training in kitchens all across Europe. With 35 years of experience in family restaurants across Long Island, Nunzio’s latest endeavor with John brings a taste of Italy to Northport.
Nunzio’s passion shines through when talking about his food. He crafts each dish using quality ingredients, seasoned with care and love. He has even received hand-written letters from customers complimenting his food. Regalo’s menu continues to evolve as he finds new ways to innovate family Neapolitan recipes. Pizza and specialty pies, of course, are customer favorites, but Nunzio insists on trying Regalo’s baked dishes. Whether it be their Baked Ziti, Baked Stuffed Shells, or Manicotti, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back in time with each bite. Be sure to try their soups, salads, and seafood dishes, too! In addition to classic Italian food, Regalo also offers wings, paninis, burgers, heroes, and more.
Customer reviews are enthusiastic about not only the food, but the Regalo crew, too. Many visitors say the staff is friendly and attentive, and compliment how fresh and tasty the food was. Terri M. even says that Regalo is her go-to spot for New York pizza when she visits from North Carolina.
Taking over Regalo also means acclimating to a new community for John and Nunzio. Their goal is to create a family-oriented atmosphere at Regalo and feed the neighborhood with food they love that keeps them coming back. John and Nunzio know the importance of paying it forward and donate to church food banks and food drives at Northport High School.
With their grand re-opening event on October 15th, John and Nunzio are excited to continue to get to know and feed the Northport community. For you next comfort food craving, visit Regalo Trattoria at 1014 Fort Salonga Road in Northport.
