Nizza La Bella - Wow

lmnopm | Mar 21, 2010 10:18 AM

This is one of those "every once in a while" places, where the food is always good, but last night we had just really exceptional food. There were 4 of us, and we ordered a variety of things.

Starters -
Mac & Cheese (now available in a small portion) - Haven't had this one in several years, just great.
Mussels - the compound garlic butter on them was so incredibly good, and the mussels were very tasty.
Balsamic roasted mushrooms - Mmm mmm good
PIzza (Napolitana) - Oh, if we only had wood ovens a few blocks away in Berkeley. Well, good for them. Their pizza is great.

Mains -
Steak Frites (mine) - really good.
Hamburger - Didn't taste, but was a hit
Roasted chicken - also didn't taste, but was a hit.

No desserts. We were ready to pop. Everything was spot-on. Bought a bottle, brought a bottle. The bill was really reasonable.

On the way out, we learned that brunch/lunch hours are starting soon (4 days/week).
