2 Amys -- the best yet

We had a very pleasant if not inexpensive meal at 2 Amys tonight. The pizzas were excellent...more well-baked then usual. I had the vongole (cockles--actually small clams in the shell); the pizza had cheese (unorthodox with clams), hot pepper,and anchovies--very delicious. My wife had her usual Norcia--salami and peppers--which she enjoyed very much. For starters, I had a nice mixed salad--overpriced at $5.25, but good--and my wife had the roast peppers--exceptionally silky--with tasty anchovies and delicious olive oil.

We drank a Salice Salentino from Puglia (we had passed through this very vineyard area last Fall on our last trip to Italy) which was very drinkable--smooth and almost French tasting--and cost $18 the bottle.

I had the blood orange sherbert for dessert--tart and refreshing--and a huge portion for $3.95.

All in all, an exceptionally enjoyable meal--but the bill ended up over $70, including tax...not exactly bargain fare.

We will be back again very soon, I am sure.
