ABOUT TONNO

In 2000, Anthony Caturano opened up his first restaurant, Prezza, in Boston’s historic North End which has earned top ratings and delighted diners for more than 15 years.  Now the famed chef and restaurateur is bringing his Old World style of cooking to Gloucester with Tonno. Tonno, Italian for “tuna,” blends together chef Caturano’s favorite culinary styles, featuring coastal Italian seafood and other treasures from land and sea. Having just undergone a full renovation, the 4,000 square foot venue is outfitted with a dining room, a lounge complete with a fireplace, a cocktail bar, and a private events room. Seating 99 people, Tonno has partial ocean views and is open year-round. The culinary program is designed to showcase Italian seafood classics, with nightly specials that reflect the catches of the day from the local waters. The menu is comprised of an array of sfizi and primi options to start, homemade pastas that are available in half and full portions, secondi courses presenting pesce and carne signature dishes, and decadent desserts. The beverage program is curated to highlight classic Italian cocktails, a selection of craft beers, and a list of 150 wines that mainly is focused on Italian varietals. 

When you buy local – everyone wins. The fisherman, the chef, the consumer. Tonno doing it right!

One of the nice things about being in Gloucester is all the fresh seafood. Grabbed some Lobsters from Joey C at Captain Joes and then headed over to Compass to see PJ for a nice 210# Blue Fin Tuna. All for the menu tonight.

This lobster was caught just hours before serving at Tonno.
