In a nutshell, it was everything I'd hoped for and more. We had:
Chicken liver crostini - I loved this! Rich liver with capers mixed in, topped with bacon.
Mozza capreze - this was burrata with roasted cherry tomatoes and basil oil, and it was fantastic.
Cauliflower gratinate - cooked in cream and roasted, this appetizer was incredibly rich and decadent. The bartender joked it should be a dessert item, which I can understand because it was soooooooo creamy and luscious!
Proscuitto de Parma - thinly sliced and full of flavor.
goat cheese, leek and bacon pizza - our absolute favorite pizza, with tons of grilled leeks and really fresh goat cheese. This is what pizza should be!
Margherita with mozzarella, tomato and basil - good, but not great. Could have used more cheese.
Fennel sausage pizza - wonderful, though my coworker thought it had too much fennel seeds in the sausage.
Butterscotch pudding - One word: DREAMY.
Strawberry gelato pie - good, but not fantastic. It is what it is.
Baked cherries with vanilla ice cream - flavorful, but the execution could use some work. Cherries had stems and pits, and while I get the rustic approach it didn't make for easy eating.
All in all, however, I loved the food, atmosphere and the service could not have been better. We sat at the bar, and the bartender, Sean, was a delight to talk to and he had a very good knowledge of the wines they offered.
I will definitely be back!
