Review Allesio-Simi Valley

SIMIHOUND | Aug 2, 2007 10:34 AM

My wife and I went last night for our anniversary. We ordered Caprese Salad - a large mozzarella, tomato & basil plate which came with roasted peppers. It was presented beautifully and was delicious. Our main course was chicken parmigana which we have had before. Yes, I know it's not an adventurous dish but I love the way they it's made plus I was hungry and this is a hugh portion. Sides were the thin spaghetti slathered with garlic and I am guessing olive oil and a serving of al dente veggies. There were at least 10-12 beautiful dessert offerings. We chose a florentine cannoili with cocoa cream inside and a dense chocolate cake with white cream inside. Both were delicious. When I was speaking with our waiter I mentioned that maybe I should have tried the homemade bread pudding instead of one of our choices. The waiter went back to the kitchen and got me a thin slice of the pudding to try. It was to die for. I was impressed that he took the time to "present it" and not just give me a sample alone on the plate. the service was excellent and the restaurant was hopping with customers. I am glad because Simi needs a decent restaurant and needs to shun it's reputation of having no good food. The website still doesn't have the Simi location listed.
