del ghittone - YUM

i hope that's the right name, anyway - ?del ghittone? on 3rd street in old city. last night i had quite possibly the best italian meal of my life.

started out with the complimentary super-crusty sesame-seed-studded bread with a rich eggplant pate. yum. they keep the bread flowing throughout the evening, for dipping in all the fabulous sauces. and dip i did. ;)

next up: a mushroom-filled crepe topped with a delicious buttery, cheesy, creamy sauce. to the side were some chopped tomatoes which complemented the crepes perfectly. so good.

i got their gnocchi of the day, a spinach gnocchi with fresh moz balls, shredded basil and a nice, light acidic sauce (just how i love it). i hope all of their raviolis and gnocchis of the day (menu changes daily) are of this caliber.

all in all, a perfect meal and i'll be back soon and often. i frequent the bar next door, charlie's quite often, and i've SMELLED this place for a while now and have been meaning to go. so sad i waited this long! the restaurant smells so enticing from as far as a block away. prices are very reasonable; two of us spent $44. you can't help but love this place.

notes for next time: remember to bring cash (no credit cards) and wine (it's a BYO)!
