Fioretto Trattoria - sat night

troy | May 9, 2005 04:14 PM

Had dinner there Saturday night. We ordered two glasses of the prosecco and a bottle of Bruenello which they were out of so they offered a wine from Montepulciano which was a nice wine at $40.00.

Fava Bean Salad – Nice preparation but the beans were a bit under cooked. Being a parmesan fan I really like the combination of cheese, walnuts and EVOO. Very good parmesan here.

Burrata with Priscuitto – One word WOW. This was almost a dessert the cheese was so sweet. By far the best thing had that night.

Carpaccio - Sort of bland but after the Burrata what can you expect.

Spinach Ricotta Gnocchi– Average, I guess. But then I’m a gnocchi snob. A little more of that great parm cheese they have would have helped. We want to try the other pastas since they looked so good going past us.

Pizza Margarita – very basic, nice flavor but we thought the crust was a little too thin even for the style pizza. It had some overly burnt edges so maybe it was a little over baked.

Chocolate molton lava cake or whatever they called it – A great way to end this meal. It needed a little whip cream on top to cut the chocolate we thought.

Espresso - Great

As far as service goes, it seemed a little disjointed once they got busy, but never missed a beat with us.
In all, while I had a few negative comments regarding the food, overall this place is bound to be a hit if it isn’t already. Being a huge fan of A16 in the city, we are pleased to have found a place which does a nice job preparing simple dishes and is so close to home. We’ll be back for sure

Regarding the corkage fees. Waived on parties of 20 or more. What the @$##%. Are there 20 people out there that would like to have a little get together and do a BYOB (bring your own brunello) email me if your interested. bayarea2345@yahoo.com
