cucina forte

herbalicious | Oct 6, 2002 03:38 AM

finally went to cucina forte tonight.

really good apps.
entrees not so much.

didn't get a chance to check the much raved about gnocchi.

had the pasta that starts with t, in the bottom left of the pasta section. taconnelle, i believe, but not sure.
wide noodles of green pasta, with mushrooms and an asparagus cream sauce. superb.

friend had tortelloni, also quite good. a redish sauce, can't recall more than that.

grilled calamari flavorful as well, and i understand my friend's scallops from the specials were tasty also.

i had the snapper special. grilled too much on one side.
topside right amount of grill time, bottom overly charred.

service pretty good, but server forgot a few things here and there.
