Finally tried Mina Cucina in Springhouse

Loved, loved, loved it! Very quaint little BYO in an unassuming shopping center, friendly service. As a little extra they put delicous fried spagetti on the table (crunch, salty, peppery). My husband and I started with the antipasta platter, in included some of the best homemade roasted peppers I've had in a while, marinated portabello mushroom, grilled zuccini, really high quality sharp cheese and proscuitto. They have a number of house made pastas on the menu (hooray!), and since home made pasta is my weakness I had the tagiatelle bolognese. Its a simple dish, but it was done perfectly, the sauce was so meaty with a slight creaminess to it, the pasta was perfectly cooked. My husband had a chicken with a spinach and gorgonzola sauce which was good (though really heavy on the spinach), the portion was so big the plate was as big as a serving tray! It was served with garlic-y green beans which were so good. We ended with a lemon ricotta cheesecake, it was so good, my husband and I were going to share but I did not let him get one bite in! We got there early, we had a little one in tow so wanted to be done before prime dinner hours, it started to get really full as we were leaving, word of mouth must have really spread about this place, there seemed to be alot of regulars. Thats why I love chowhound, I would never have thought to try this place and I had a bad experience with them before (wrong hours posted on their website) so I almost gave up on them, but I heard such good things about this place I thought I'd give it a try, I'm so glad I did.
