Had dinner tonight at a new Italian restaurant serving food from the Emilia Romagna region of Italy (the gastronomical capital of Italy). The menu was surprisingly authentic to that region and sounded impressive. It was a good meal which is surprising for Italian food in the suburbs (or anywhere for that matter).
For apps we had melanzane involtini stuffed with mozzarella and excellent balsamic vinegar ($7) and grilled asparagus topped with a fried egg and shavings of parmesean cheese ($8), both quite good. Entrees were grilled pork chop with diced fennel and pancetta ($16) and ossobuco with risotto milanese ($25), the pork chop was good but a bit overdone and the ossobuco was falling off the bone tender. Dessert was a homemade apple tort with pumpkin ice cream ($5), pretty good. I pulled out the 1990 Oddero Barolo that I have been waiting to drink and it was fabulous (actually it was the first time I have had a waiter decant a bottle of wine for me just in case there was any sediment, surprising).
It was a good dinner, a bit expensive, but we will return. Ravenna is located on Skippack Pike, right next to FuziOn.
