A native Sicilian — and former professional basketball player — will open an authentic Sicilian restaurant with a touch of Oregon flair in the Pearl District later this month. Francesco Inguaggiato, a chef and former professional basketball player for the Italian League in Italy, recently moved to Portland and will open his third restaurant, Bellino Trattoria Siciliana, in the former Fratelli restaurant in the Pearl on April 14.

Located in a 2,200-square-foot space at 1230 N.W. Hoyt Street, Bellino Trattoria Siciliana (Bellino) will serve lunch, happy hour and dinner Tuesdays through Saturdays. According to a release, Inguaggiato will bring "100 percent, classic and authentic dishes to Portland."
