La Scarola

Been meaning to visit for quite a while.

Pasta & Fagioli, amazing tender white bean and little round pasta in a wonderful white broth, maybe chicken base with fresh herbs and tomato. Truly top notch.

Tuna rare served over wilted spinach with tomato and garlic, fresh lemon, surrounded by garlic sauteed little neck clams. Perfectly rare, too many places overcook the stuff. Great balance. Spinach needed a bit of salt, otherwise perfect.

To end, Cannoli redolent with an ammaretto whipped ricotta filling and crushed nuts in a perfect baked pastry wrap.

Definite fan.
