Apizz report

ultbil | Mar 27, 2005 11:57 PM

Had a good dinner at Apizz.

Started with the Bufalo Mozz and Tomato app, served with roasted peppers. We were told that the mozz is flown in from Italy every Thursday (the night that we were there, so it was at its freshest), but it didn't taste or look any different than 'regular' fresh mozz...good, not great.

I should mention that they provide a good bread for the table, and it's served with a warm dish of tomato sauce and a second dish of fluffy, cloud-like ricotta cheese that is very good...you can make mini-pizzas (w/ricotta instead of mozz).

We got a pizza and a gnocci for entrees. The pizza was thin and tasted matzah-like, with some flour residue. It was ok, not great.

The gnocco, however, was fantastic. Semi-dense gnocci with a pork ragut, somewhat sweet because the pork is cooked with honey. This was a great dish.

I plan to go back and check out the rest of the menu.

A bit of warning, most/all of the food is cooked in a wood burning oven. Perhaps they need to clean out their ventilation system, b/c when we first got there the smell of wood/smoke was a bit much. You get used to it after a while, but when you get home, your hair and clothes still smell of a campfire.
