Restaurants & Bars

Fiama, brief report

Kirk Wallace | May 20, 2002 12:11 PM

went last night, party of 3, had 3 antipasti and 3 pastas (and 3 deserts). on the whole, its worthy of future investigation. 2 of the 3 pastas were very good (especially a stracci with rabbit bolognese sauce); the 3d, a veal shank raviolini, was virtually inedible -overreduced stock and a muddled filling of good meat and indifferent cheese; but they were very gracious and interested in the feedback and without any bidding removed the dish from the bill. Deserts were very good, not too big nor too sweet (very good dark bittersweet chocolat "sorbetto" with a caramelized banana tort.)

very interesting wine list, and on the whole fairly priced (maybe 15% too high, but that is a quibble) given the newness of the restaurant and the obvious investment in the rennovation of the building.

service was well meaning and occassionally good -- that probably needs the most work.

very fairly priced given the ingredients and location.
