Sovalo revisited

We had another enjoyable dinner at Sovalo, 2nd and Fairmount, this weekend. (Philadelphia)

My husband's appetizer of zucchini blossoms stuffed with salt cod - deep fried - was delicious. I had an interesting and well-balanced salad, and our friends who shared mussels loved the flavor of the broth.

We all had pastas as entrees. The standout favorite was the pappardelle with rabbit, though I loved my pasta with fresh sardines, pine nuts and raisins. I didn't taste my friend's risotto, but she said it was excellent.

We shared desserts - a rhubarb and strawberry tart with vanilla gelato. I would rate this okay, but nothing special.

Prices are moderate. They have a full service bar. Street parking makes it easy.
