Da Flora: how i love thee

Lord Griffin | Nov 3, 2005 01:33 AM

so earlier today i posted about my wonderful lunch at Canteen... i ended the day at Da Flora in North Beach... wow what a gastronomically orgasmic day.

First of all Da Flora is beautiful inside. only problem is the mother and daughter dont seem incredibly eager to seat you... we had to do some kissing up throughout the meal to get them to warm up ( maybe we looked like tourists)... either way, i just dont care because the meal was absolutley perfect.

best Italian ive ever had. the Gnocchi with sherry sage bacon sauce was so amazing that Flora asked me what was wrong... i told her my eyes were rolling around in my head because it was the best thing ive ever tasted.

their bread is AMAZING, no butter, no olive oil for dipping... trust me, you dont need it.

i had the lamb bolognese as my entree, which was perfect, which came after my house smoked tuna carpaccio with shaved fennel... which was also perfect.

all in all my gf and i paid 120 bucks for 2 apps, 2 entrees, desser, and 4 glasses of wine, with tip. best meal ive had since i moved here 3 months ago.
