LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Michael Fryar, general manager of Zaffino's by Nori in Sherwood, stopped by THV 11 This Morning to talk about his restaurant.

Nori is Michael's mother, an Italian immigrant from Venice who brought her Venetian recipes and sensibilities with her. She worked at the LRAFB

in the mess hall before working at Zaffino's and eventually buying it in 1995.

The recipes are authentic Italian, which is really nice, but what makes Zaffino's feel so special is just how homey and familial it really is. Nori busies herself at each table and has an uncanny knack for remembering most of the people who come in her door.
