Made myself hungry (doesnt take much) posting about Savoia earlier today, so we went there around 8pm. As I said in my previous post, we generally go even earlier, but I wanted to see if there's a difference a little later on (but not too late). It was more crowded, but not an exclusively younger crowd. All age ranges. Music was a little louder at first but I didnt care since it was the Gipsy Kings. By the end of our meal it was techno. so we chuckled and finished up.
The baby spinach salad was excellent (again). Fresh ingredients: some sliced pears, little cubes of good pork, walnuts and a light hand with the blue cheese dressing. My wife's beet salad with arugula and walnuts was also very good. So was her Rigatoni ala Norma, which had ricotta and eggplant in a tasty tomato sauce. I had to try a new pizza after Sir G's post, so I asked the bald guy (who we like -- although he pretends to have an "I dont care" attitude, he winks and cant help smiling a little, even though it's not cool) to recommend one. It had hot sopressata (very very very hot sopressata), excellent mozz., spinach, and sauteed somewhat sweet onions. Good but I'll go back to my Four Seasons or try something else next time. I liked it but just cant take the heat. A bottle of inexpensive Sicilain red rounded the meal out just fine.
I still very much recommend the place. Oh yeah, only AmEx and cash these days. Grrr!
