The “secondi” menu includes pollo rollatini ($18.95), a boneless free-range chicken rolled with ground sausage, portobello mushrooms and roasted peppers in a sweet soy and balsamic reduction, and vitello saltimbocca ($18.95), a scallopine of veal with prosciutto and hard-boiled eggs over sautéed spinach in a brown sauce. Among the pizzas are alla jessabella ($10.95), a four cheese white pizza, and alla Marco ($10.95), made with mozzarella, pepperoni and tomato sauce. Seal your meal with desserts like cannoli ($5.95), tiramisu ($5.95) or chocolate truffle cake ($6.95), a blend of semisweet chocolate and dark rum, dusted with cocoa and chocolate shavings.

Heads Up: It’s BYO, but the restaurant will also have the red or white wine of your choice delivered to your table by a local vendor.

The Scoop: Located in the heart of downtown Morristown, adjacent to the Community Theater at Mayo Center for the Performing Arts and in walking distance of the town Green.
