Valentino restaurant very short review

westsidegal | Apr 3, 2010 01:31 PM

had dinner at valentino last thursday:
started with the La Verde salad, butter lettuce & spinach salad, Taleggio dressing, Grana Padano, toasted hazelnuts.
it was fine

went on to have the
fusilli with fresh tomato, eggplant, and basil
it was better than fine, but i prefer a less authentic presentation with more sauce relative to the amount of pasta.

for my entree, had the
turbot on a bed of spinach with stewed cherry tomatoes (can't remember the name of this dish),
this was really excellent

and for dessert had the
Sicilian Cannelloni
this was *****PHENOMENAL!!!!
easily the very best cannelloni i've had in my life, by far.
it was served with a tiny scoop of raspberry sorbet, which easily ranked as the best raspberry sorbet i've had in my life.
this dish, to my palate, raises the bar for all other desserts ever anywhere, it was that good.
