Awesome Gnocchi in Santa Monica

JB Leibovitch | Sep 14, 200005:45 AM     4

I'm a SoCal native living in SF Bay Area. I did not discover gnocchi (little pillows of potato pasta) until I started touring North Beach on my stomach. Recently, friends took us to Spumoni on Montana (near 15th?) in Santa Monica, good-but-not-great Minestrone, but the gnocchi, OH MY GOD GOOD. I scanned the menu, but the highlight is the gnocchi page where you can choose from 10 or so sauces with your gnocchi. The gnocchi itself was firm enough to hold up the sauce, but delicate enough to just melt in your mouth. I had the fresh tomato sauce, always my favorite with gnocchi, it provided the right balance without being heavy. My wife had the gnocchi with alfredo-like sauce and mushrooms, if you like alfredo with your gnocchi try the option without mushrooms. Whatever you do, get the gnocchi! Spumoni is not fancy, dinner for four with some soup/salad and a nice Chianti was under $100. Check it out!
