It is not every day we dine at a close personal friends’ restaurant, but tonight we do. The recently opened Pretto Cucina will surely wow your taste buds. We have dined at owner Mona’s other restaurant multiple times where my wife, who has known Mona for 7 years, learned how to make her first cappuccino as the hostess. Pretto is Mona’s new creation, taking over from Al Dente that was her baby for 20 years. Pretto is an all-day modern Italian cafe and aperitif bar located in the heart of the Upper West Side of NYC. They pride themselves on the quality of their authentic Italian cuisine. Pretto, which means “pure” in Italian, carefully crafts all dishes with an emphasis on using only the freshest local market ingredients to ensure a wholesome & traditional Italian experience. The restaurant is newly renovated in a simple and classic way and has offered us a great Italian menu.
