For this, the second branch of their family-friendly paninoteca e gelateria, Golosi, husband and wife team Pino and Lucia Manica have envisioned a Calabrian-inspired, casual eatery that’s as good for Italian-style lingering as it is for a NYC-style “in and out” quick bite. Calabrian stuffed bread called Guastedra, a slang name for the scrap loaves made in Italian small-town community ovens, form a cornerstone of the menu, filled with such things as pickled eggplant and mortadella or pepperoni and fontina. Traditional paninis and thin-crust pizzas round out the menu of Italian specialties—all to be enjoyed with imported sodas like spuma nera, cedrata and chinotto. As with the flagship location at 125 Park Avenue, Golosi also features a central gelato station whose contents are made fresh each day.

Golosi’s bi-level space consists of a sleek, modern white interior with green mosaic tile, wood finishes, and aluminum pendant lamps over the gelato and salumi case. Upstairs, a minimalist terrace provides additional seating and views to the main area below—along with a vintage Vespa that’s subtly perched in a hidden nook above the doorway. The space is outfitted with a public wifi connection for those who wish to use it.golosi Table%20and%20Menu%20Golosi 

In addition to a full selection of beers, Golosi offers ten selections of wine on tap, priced between $5 and 15 a glass.We tasted crispy pizza, (classic Margherita tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil is recommended),  as well as fresh salads, a chicken cutlet panini and tilapia filet over romaine. End with an assortment of smooth gelati (chocolate was the star) and you will be pleased.

A pleasant addition to the neighborhood, Golosion deserves your consideration. To celebrate the recent opening of Golosion 2nd Ave, the restaurant is planning a “Free Small Gelato Friday” on November 19 for lunch and dinner service. This offer is only available at the 2nd Ave. location
