Modern Italian Cuisine
Stone Fire is traditional Italian with a twist
“Modern Italian with a traditional flair.” That’s how General Manager Gianni Piccolino describes the food at Stone Fire, Mt. Kisco’s newest
Stone Fire is Piccolino’s and chef/owner Tommy Calandrucci’s fifth restaurant together. Here, they offer up a casual ambience. Downstairs, the focal point is the pizza oven—pizzas range from the simple Margherita to a Napolitano with prosciutto, fig jam, gorgonzola, and brie. Upstairs there’s an airy, yet rustic, industrial feel.
On the food front, all the pastas are homemade and include such signature dishes as the maccheroni ala vodka. In keeping with Calandrucci’s desire to “give the food a twist,” there’s a roasted cauliflower Caesar salad and a deconstructed lasagna where, instead of layers, the dish is served in the round with a ribbon pasta. At lunch there are sandwiches, and on Sunday, a buffet brunch is served.
The cocktail list shows whimsy in the rum-based “Don’t Drive Miss Daisy” or the fig vodka-based “Fig-Getaboutit.” There’s wine on tap and a nice selection of beers. “From the food to our beverage menu we looked to keep our prices reasonable,” Calandrucci says.
