Appetizer heaven Saturday night

Just Larry | Mar 28, 200509:45 PM

Went to Fioretto at night for the first time. Saturday night. Arrived at 6:30 expecting it to be empty but it was actually about half full. They had a party of 8 arrive at 7:00 without reservations and they were sent away. Within 15 minutes all but one 2 top was full. We were a group of 5 and so we ordered lots of starters. They do a Burrata with Prescuitto, Arrugula and reduced Basalmico. House smoked Trout Bruscetta. Fresh Fava Beans with Grana Cheese, Ceasar'ish Salad. Many of the people in our group had never had many of these things and were just blown away by the flavors and also the fact that most things were about 7 dollars and all were under 10 dollars each. We had to have some pasta so we had a Penne with Shrimp in a slightly spicy Tomato Sauce and also a Spaghetti with Green Beans and Potato in a Pesto Sauce. Fabulous. Of course dessert was Chocolate Bread Pudding. After one bite, the quiet and reserved one of our group said "get out of my way" and practically vacuumed up her dessert. Still no wine license. For more than a month his "agent" has been telling him that it is in the mail. I wish someone could help him find out the true status of his license. Our bill with tax and tip was less than $30.00 a person. Without the revenue from liquor it almost seems that he is working for free. Such a great place. I am really glad that he had such a good night. He has such a true passion for food. Mentally he is one of us (although he has never gone to this web site)... and a chef too.
