il cantuccio dinner

michelle | Oct 8, 2003 12:24 AM

Last night I went for dinner after hearing some on this board and reading a few scattered local reviews.

I still wasnt sure I wanted to eat there so figured what the hell? Im right here in front!

I will stream it to be brief:

a)Service slow but pleasant

b)My huge, surprisingly meat packed roasted rabbit came out tepid, meat was fabulous though-$20-ish. The saucing of it was oddly heavy and a bit too vinegary/lemony bright. It did have a delightfully done side of chopped asparagus, onion, garlic, tomato all sauteed briefly. Mmmm. Just that side would have been perfect without the weirdish rosemary/lemony sauce. I was sort of full by the time it got to me so now I have lots of rabbit that I can pat the bad sauce off of and eat!

c)carpaccio was way too covered in an oily lemony sauce thing as well, too many capers also, near $7

d)caesar was pleasant but not amazing, still nice, near $6

e)pumpkin ravioli with sage butter and parmesian delicious, near $13

f)Rosato, $25, which seems high for a basic table wine, still yummy.

g)gummi bears with the tab, super cute but sort of mis-matched

h)Nice interior, mellow crowd, quiet, not at all the typical crowd for the Valencia corridor, much more neighborhood-ish.

So, would I go back? Yes. I'd definitely give them another shot, just to be sure.
