well, we ended up not meeting our friends for Sushi on the Westside, so I picked up some dinner from Spumoni in Sherman Oaks. I have to say, the staff is so darn friendly. Anyway, I ordered a Gnocchi Pavarotti (homemade gnocchi w/traditional meat sauce). We had ordered this once when we ate at the restaurant and it was a little too doughy. But last night, it was like butter! so delicious. We also ordered a Farfalle al Salmon..farfalle w/salmon in a light pink sauce. this was delicious too. nice big chunks of salmon. Also got a cup of vegetarian minestrone soup.
We got lots of hot, homemade bread and the yummy olive paste. It was a fantastic meal that warmed us up on a rainy night.
p.s. they also threw in a slice of tiramisu! All for $30! can't beat it.
