Capsule description: Some might call Sardelli's an expensive, ornate Italian steakhouse. Others might call it a welcoming, Italian family place that's great for special dinners with friends and family. Both would be right. This is the latest project from the Sardelli family, who own Fulvio's 1900 and have been feeding South Floridians for decades. Behind a heavy inlaid wood door lies a 35-seat dining room and an open kitchen with well-worn pots and pans hanging from above. The kitchen, led by Fulvio Sardelli Jr., is turning out homemade pastas and well-marbled, high-priced steaks. The Raviolo, filled with ricotta cheese, spinach and an egg yolk that explodes and creates a rich savory sauce, is amazing. Sardelli's also offers a variety of expertly small plates that bank on fresh ingredients and simple execution. The younger Sardelli says the majority of his business comes from repeat customers. We hope we can make enough money to become one.
