Baldoria - Russian Hill Italian

stacy c | Nov 1, 2004 10:38 PM

Went to Baldoria (soon to change name to Amarena) on Russian Hill tonight.

I've been there before - for a couple dishes in particular - there's a great light salad with mixed greens, fennel, oranges, olives, pear tomatoes, and a light orange vinaigrette.

But the dish I love is the gnocchi with the lamb "bolognese" - it is seriously, so much better than other versions. These are really pillows - not rocks and the sauce is just perfect - not too much of anything - a bit sweet from red peppers - but great meat flavor..

Not sure about other items on the menu - unfortunately not a lot of other dishes appeal to me...
