Topo Gigio (Old Town)

Area: Downtown

This casual, urban eatery is nestled in the heart of Old Town and offers contemporary Italian fare.  We love the big menu that caters to varying tastes. Big eaters and light eaters alike will be happy here. In terms of decor, this is very much a neighborhood joint with a homey, rustic Italian feel. 

Light eaters will appreciate the high-end salads and grilled options.  The expansive menu includes Italian favorites such as carpaccio, grilled and fried calamari, bruschetta, a spinach entree salad with grilled shrimp, gourmet starter salads, nearly a dozen pasta choices, grilled chicken breast, veal, and our favorite, the grilled scampi and scallops on a skewer served atop steamed spinach! There are also a number of worthy side dishes such as broccoli, spinach, asparagus, extra meats, extra shrimp and roasted potatoes. 

Open for lunch Mon-Sat starting at 11:30a; dinner nightly starting at 4p.
