What can I say other than WOW. We decided to dine last night at 6, our usual weekly dinner out on the town and we decided on Ciao Baby on Elm St Manchester again this week. We listened to the specials and decided in the "Giant Meatball" appetizer, and the Chianti wine.

The waitress shocked us as she arrived with a chilled wine bucket and a bottle of sparkling wine... on the house! It was in celebration for the new year, a very nice touch which we enjoyed fully.

The meatball arrived and it was huge and delicious, served on fresh spring greens.

I decided on the swordfish special, and hubby on the steak (menu item) ... Both of us were very pleased. The steak was perfectly medium, served with greens and very tasty mashed potato... I know I stole two bites.

My swordfish was grilled to perfection, with fingerling potatoes and perfect still crisp asparagus with none of the "stringiness" that I have found in many places.

Then, came dessert.......

Have you ever wanted to lick your dessert cup? Well I did.... I wanted to savor every decadent morsel of my creme brulee and my husband's flourless chocolate cake did not escape my fork either, as I found it was just as sinful as my choice.

With the check came chocolates, a nice touch as well. Ciao Baby on Elm is showing its ability to impress me yet again. and as many in here know, I do not often give praise, I usually only frump when I am disappointed. But I must give this establishment its kudos once again.
