What a special treat. We arrived earlier than our reservation and were seated right away, I enjoyed an Apperol Spritzer and my husband a cappucino. The grilled Romano salad was especially wonderful and larger than I expected, very rich. Bacon was more like seared pork belly cubes. A shareable dish. The bread and homemade cheese straws (special mention!) came with top quality olive oil for dipping.
We loved our spot tucked into a table out of the way next to the window, framed in the velvet curtains.
Entrees-I had Agnolotti-luscious pillows of ravioli filled with velvety smooth sweet corn & mascarpone, topped with clarified butter and lobster. Lovely! The half portion was still a good size and I couldn't finish.
Hubby's entree was a special not listed on the menu. Curly pasta ribbons with garlic, chives and shrimp. Also amazing, he ate every bite.
For dessert I had a cannoli, which I was hesitant to try because I've yet to have a good one, authentic, outside of Italy. We spend time in Tuscany last summer and I loved good Italian cannoli, which are sadly not the same here.Until now! This was the best cannoli I've ever had in this country. Crisp shell lined with chocolate on the inside, creamy/cheesy filling not too sweet, studded with lightly crunchy pistachios and chocolate bits. Yes. Hubby had tiramisu, which was also rich, creamy and perfect, not boozy though.
Service was amazing and top notch. We'll be back.
