The town of Old Saybrook has welcomed one of the few truly authentic Italian restaurants on the Shoreline. Tiberio’s Restaurant specializes in “contemporary Italian cuisine” -- meaning you’ll find a lot more than the traditional Italian fare on the menu.
Chef and owner, Antonio Barbi, was born and raised in Italy. At the age of eight he began working in the restaurant business by delivering espresso to the merchants in the open-air market of his neighborhood in Portici, Naples. There he worked for six years, in the pastry shop and learning basic cooking skills.
