A family, friendly atmosphere specializing in authentic Italian cuisine!
MASTELLO ITALIAN RISTORANTE
﷯ Since opening its doors in 1992, Mastello's Restaurant has been a favorite in Fort Myers, enjoyed by locals alike. There are signature items like Linguini Pepe Nero con Pollo and Rigatoni Piccanti, as well as traditional Italian dishes such as Ravioli served with a Butter-Sage sauce, that bring a uniqueness to the menu not found anywhere else. Our produce is hand-selected and most of it is local. Come experience a piece of Italy in Southwest Florida. After 25 years of serving the community, our emphasis has never wavered. We have an extensive wine list, truly authentic Italian food that's made from the freshest ingredients and homemade pastas and sauces, and a casual fine dining atmosphere. ﷯From our fresh, crisp salads featuring hand-selected produce and house salad dressings, to our original pasta creations, you can be certain to find a dish for everyone in the family! Owner, Chef Carlo Rao, is a graduate of The School of White Art in Torino, Italy. His approach and knowledge gained from living and working in several regions of his native Italy brings a uniqueness to the menu not found anywhere else.
