Husband and wife team Francesco d'Amuri and Alison De Renzi moved from Florence, Italy to New Haven in 2002 to open L'Orcio restaurant. The idea was a simple one; it would be great to share the culinary wealth the many regions of Italy in one restaurant, on one menu. They decided to stick with classic Italian food, the kind you would expect when visiting a small local eatery, in a small charming town.
Chef d'Amuri chose the name L'Orcio (lorcho') because he felt it embodied the concept of their new restaurant. An Orcio is a terracotta urn with a large opening used by Etruscans to store food, including olive oil. It is a modern day artifact that has always maintained its original form and function and is still used by Tuscans today. It is earthy, rustic and functional just like the food Chef features on the menu.
The restaurant offers an array of traditional dishes from the different regions of Italy.
