Best Upscale Italian Place
Readers, upstate: Nino’s Pizza (4553 Kirkwood Hwy., Wilmington, 998-5000; 2070 Naamans Road, Wilmington, 475-9800; 188 Penn Mart Center, New Castle, 323-9979; 1663 Pulaski Hwy., Bear, 834-3636; 464 W. Main St., Middletown, 449-0911)

Readers, downstate: DiFebo’s (789 Garfield Pkwy., Bethany Beach, 539-4914)

Critics, upstate: Situating itself somewhere between mom and pop Italian and the fancy, big city Italian places, Pomodoro Ristorante Italiano has served homestyle Southern Italian cuisine in Wilmington’s Little Italy for more than a year. The Parmisciano brothers honor their grandmother’s Old Country cooking with dishes such as carpaccio di salmone: thinly sliced Norwegian salmon cured in lemon and extra virgin olive oil, topped with rucola, cherry tomatoes and capers, and finished with saffron and grated Caciotta cheese. And seafood specials that include octopus, shrimp and scallops have caught customers’ attention. Pomodoro’s wine list features 20 reds, a handful of sparkling wines and a dozen whites ranging from $24 a bottle to $250 (Sassicaia). Glasses range from $6 to $12. The tiramisu has no equal in these parts. (720 N. Union St., Wilmington, 574-9800)
