American Press Travel News-Bob and Barb-“On the Road Again”–May 5th, 2021—This time. stopping at Ristorante Corleone Italian Steakhouse and Seafood. We met Chef and Owner Luca Fontanarosa. He was born and raised in Catania, Sicily (Italy) We ate very well, on delicious fruits of the sea at this Island in PSL.
We noticed the great large portioned dishes at the diners tables, as we entered. We whet our appetite with crab cakes (yes, just like in Italy, too) fried Calamari, with a dipping sauce extraordinary, and a bottle of Pellegrino, next to very tasty garlic breads. Next came our main dishes. Barb wanted salmon in butter and lemon sauce, it was such a big portion, that we ate it again for lunch, the next day. It came with a great al dente spaghetti side dish. I had a favorite, but done even better than I remembered “Zuppa Di Pesce”, a seafood stew for those that don’t know “Zuppe.” clams, shrimp, mussels, were simmered in a sauce that truly showed the chefs understanding of great flavors. We topped off this fine meal with Cappuccino coffee’s, Tiramisu Ceciliani, and Cannoli’s. This meal was best ever for Italian cuisine on the Treasure Coast. The room is not gigantic, its nice, and almost intimate, so reservations would be smart. Call (772)-323-0355. Don’t fret, there is plenty of free parking, and easy access to 8621 S. Federal Hwy. Port St Lucie. On a scale of 1-10, we offer an 11.
