Enoteca on Court St

For some reason the thread was removed on this, but CH sent me the text of my post to repost, so here goes ;)

My husband and I went to Enoteca tonight and
sat in the back garden. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The food
was delicious and we sampled many things ---- mozzerella/tomato salad,
gnocchi with gorgonzola, veal polpette, spicy pork bruschetta,
pancetta bruschetta, taleggio/mozzerella/olive/mushroom/braesola
pizza, and vanilla ice cream. The stand outs were the gnocchi (really
a wonderful combo, the gnocchi with the gorgonzola), the pizza, and
the ice cream. Honestly it was really all great....I think I would
prefer a softer, creamier mozzerella but that's about the only fault I
can come up with. Oh, and serving bread from that brick oven (though I
actually don't mind that we didnt fill up on bread) to mop up things
like the polpette sauce. I really appreciated the interesting pizza
toppings they've come up with. We're very interested in sampling ice
creams at the moment, as we've started to make our own at home, and
their vanilla was superb.....the chef told us their equipment comes
from Italy and the chef learned his art there. It shows, I'd love to
know how they got such a perfect texture.

Service was very attentive. Our server was extremely pleasant and
accommodating and the exec. chef came out for a chat (it was a quiet
evening, as it was a monday) about the meal. Apparently most of the
menu is made in cream, cured meats, etc. The patio is
really lovely too.

What a great addition to the neighborhood.
