For our many readers who have written asking us if Caci in Southold will reopen…it could. But, if it does, Chef Marco Pellegrini will not be involved. The former Caci chef is opening a new restaurant in Smithtown.
Chef Marco announced Friday that he will open Osteria Umbria on Terry Road in Smithtown early next year. The restaurant is inspired by the Italian region in which he was raised – Umbria. He moved to eastern Long Island five years ago when the popular Italian restaurant, Caci, opened.
Caci closed unexpectedly last fall shortly after their sister restaurant on Shelter Island likewise closed. The Main Street eatery has remained shuttered since.
