I did a quick search and didn't find any posts that gave a detailed report on the food at Il Canne Rosso. Given that, I'd like to report that tonight I enjoyed a quick but transcendant dinner at the small store. I had the porcheta dinner which came with a small salad of micro greens dressed in a lemony dressing and a side of roasted Marquita Farm potatoes with whole cloves of roasted garlic.

For only $12.95 I was given a generous pile of the meat, with lots of crispy pieces of skin scattered on top and a juicy quality that I'm not sure I've ever experienced in a piece of pork. I don't know that I have ever had such delicious pork, anywhere. It was incredibly well-seasoned, every bite was tender, and the skin was a decadent, crispy, fatty delight. I couldn't finish the potatoes and brought most of them home. This is a great deal for the price--at a regular restaurant I could easily imagine being charged at least twice the price. I can't say much else except WOW.
