Smoked Duck Sugo at Ottavio, Walnut Creek

jmarek | Nov 20, 2011 09:06 PM

Another great meal at Ottavio this weekend. The highlight was a ricotta gnocchi with smoked duck sugo that may be the best thing I've eaten this year. The star was the meaty sauce, a massive amount of smoked duck leg melting into a rich tomato cream sauce. The pasta looked like potato gnocchi but had a softness and light tang from the cheese. It was a great foil for the ducky perfection. We love the homemade bigoli with pork cheek sugo as well (how can you go wrong with pork cheeks?), but the duck sugo was on another level.
