Incanto visit

My wife and I finally tried Incanto and I just want to give a big thumbs up. We started with the Antipasto platter of house cured meats. It was absolutely wonderful. A nice journey of flavors. My only complaint was that our waiter was feeling a bit cheeky and when my wife asked him to tell us what each selection was again, he proceeded to give us graphic detail about which line was the cartilledge of pig ear and so on. It was a bit over the top for her and ruined her appetite for the meats.

My wife ordered the handkerchief pasta with pork ragu. It had a very nice, rustic flavor. If you were in Tuscany and went into a restaurant after a day of hunting wild boar, this exact dish would be on the menu. My entree was the Venison special and it too was very rustic and authentic. The flavors all around were bold and I felt they all had a strong point of view about being connected to the earth.

Aside from the cheeky waiter, who was otherwise fine, we had an amazing meal. My only watch out would be to avoid ordering as much meat as we did. They have such a rustic and bold approach that my the end of our entrees we were a little burned out on the meats. That's our own fault. We'll mix up our selections a little better next time.
