Had a chance to drop in and enjoy some dishes off the afternoon menu.
Started with a nice Caesar salad ( on the menu it was described as Cacio E Pepe
romaine lettuce, garlic breadcrumb, parmigiano, anchovy vinaigrette)
and fried calamari, properly breaded, not chewy and correctly fried. Three pasta dishes. A super rich and decadent rigatoni with mushroom and black truffle moliterno cheese.
A cappelletti with truffle ricotta ravioli, butter, prosciutto and tagliatelle bolognese, a little simple compared to the other two but delicious, sturdy and filling.
Finished with an intense coffee tasting tiramisu and some espresso. Started with two glasses of wine.
All in all a simple wonderful afternoon meal.
