Creamy tomato soup was delicious, using fresh tomatoes with several small chunks of tomato left in the soup. The cream was also fresh tasting and used sparingly. I really liked this dish.
I spread the sunny side up fried eggs around the top of the black truffle and mozzarella pizza, and it added a nice creaminess. It also complemented the black truffle pesto on this good-sized thin crust pizza.
The radicchio served with the burrata had a little balsamic mixed in, and added the necessary bitterness to offset the smooth creaminess of the cheese. The portion of burrata was impressive…. a whole hunk of it served with the radicchio and Mediterranean bread.
Rapini was cooked perfectly, with a nice bite still present. And the lemon gave it a nice zest.
This place gets busy and a little loud for weekday lunches, but for an early weekend lunch, it’s quite relaxed and pleasant.
They also have a wide variety of gourmet food items ranging from various dried pastas to a huge selection of dried beans to various olive oils and vinegars to condiments, including a favorite: purple condiment.
