Confetti Ristorante opened in late May on Ash Street in Piermont, where Pasta Amore used to be. Arturo Lepore, who owned the popular Parmigiano in Old Tappan (which closed two years ago), has come out retirement to open Confetti with his sons Joe and Sam.
“The menu,” says Arturo, “is not Italian-American but true Italian – no veal parmigiana here.” Ingredients are authentic Italian, and many are imported or made in-house. “We make our own mozzarella and our own bread,” he added, “and we’re serving all Italian wine, nothing domestic.” Pastas are made in-house, too.
The Sicilian-style pesto at Confetti is made with ground almonds instead of pignoli nuts. The menu will change three times a year, with seasonal pastas, entrees and appetizers.
The inside has been redone, and is upscale but relaxed, with vibrant Tuscan colors. In nice weather, there’s ample outdoor seating. Arturo adds, “We take reservations for parties of three or more – and we honor those reservations. No waiting!”
The 411 is coming. Confetti is at 200 Ash St., Piermont. 845-365-1911
