Tony, Sarah and Giovanni, in the Badlands of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

Welcome to our Blog!

We are Sarah and Tony Nasello, and we write a weekly food column called “Home with The Lost Italian,” which runs every Wednesday in Fargo’s local newspaper, The Forum. Sarah does most of the writing, and the posts are written from her perspective.

We are thrilled to be joining you in this medium, too, and will post our columns and recipes here after they run in the newspaper, along with other musings about food, wine, family and life.

In 2000, we opened Sarello’s Restaurant & Wine Lounge, a fine dining restaurant located in downtown Moorhead, Fargo’s sister city. Before we became restaurateurs, we worked together throughout the 1990s as hotel officers aboard luxury cruise ships. We have sailed all around the world, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, with visits to all seven continents. We are passionate about food, wine, travel, family, friends, North Dakota, Italy, and especially our 8 year old son, Giovanni. We are excited to have you join us on this virtual journey.

If there’s anything you’d like to see us feature, either in the column or here on the blog, please feel free to let us know. You can post right to the blog in the comments section below, or send us an email to dine@sarellos.com. We would love to hear from you.

      Thank you, Diane! We are so glad to know that you found and enjoyed our edamame recipe and happy that it was featured in the Brainerd Dispatch. I went to their website but could not locate the article. Was it in the print edition? I know that any Forum affiliated paper can pull our columns from the wire whenever they wish, and we would love to be featured regularly in your area.

      Your comment has made our day. Thank you so much for getting in touch. Warmly, Sarah and Tony

      Hi Martha,

      Thank you so much for your messages. I am sorry to hear you are having problems. The Forum has been making changes to the AreaVoices blog format, so it would help me to know how you are trying to sign up. It appears, from my end, that the button I normally have posted on our homepage to “SUBSCRIBE” to our blog is no longer present – I’m not sure if that was the portal you were trying to use, or if you tried another way. Please give me a little more detail and I will make sure we get you subscribed.

      Many thanks,
