Fulvio Sardelli Jr
WINE, FINE FOOD AND THE GOOD LIFE!
The name Sardelli and fine cuisine have been synonymous for four generations. Great Grandfather Sardelli’s farm in Monte Casino, Italy was well known in the region for the freshest and finest of vegetables. Grandfathers Luigi and Pasquale both continued the family tradition producing from figs to tobacco. Pasquale’s farm in Benevento, Italy was known for the finest olives and olive oil in the region. It is no wonder how Fulvio Sr. and later his son, Chef-Owner, Fulvio Sardelli Jr. became enamored with the finest and freshest ingredients for their menus.
After working in the restaurant under his father’s tutelage from the time he was 8; Fulvio attended Culinary School and became the executive Chef at Fulvio’s 1900 in Historic Downtown Hollywood. After 9 years as Chef, Fulvio decided to pursue his and his father’s next endeavor to open an intimate Italianesque Villa serving fine food and wines. Hence, the birth of Sardelli Italian Steakhouse at 331 Van Buren Street on Hollywood Beach.
According to the Miami Herald’s Fine Dining Review of May 2012 Sardelli Italian Steakhouse is the ‘new star on Hollywood Beach’. The four-story, $3 million, four year endeavor has resulted in ‘a fine-dining destination that has a cozy but contemporary decor. With its long drapes, mahogany furniture and crystal chandeliers, you could be dining in an expensive home, except this one has a chic onyx bar and a gleaming open kitchen. There’s a crowd and a buzz in the 35-seat first-floor dining room and bar, especially on weekends. If you want a quieter, more romantic meal, request a table in the second-story wine room, where there’s another small dining room and outdoor balcony. The third and fourth floors are for private parties.’
The wine list boasts over 400 selections of fine wines which will never disappoint! In the Spring, Fulvio will begin to offer weekly cooking classes and ‘wine paired’ dinners, so until then, the family and staff at Sardelli invite you to join them for a sumptuous evening you won’t soon forget!
