Short report on Zuppa. Group of us met up there tonight after today's Giant game and I was very pleasantly reminded at how tasty the place is.
The Olive/Margherita pizza had a tangy sauce, lovely cheese and the crust had just the right amount of chew.
The Rigatoni witht the Pork Ragout was possibly one of the best pasta dishes I can remember having in SF. Perfect amount of salt, the pasta was judiciously cooked the porky flavor was redolent. A standout dish.
The veal chop I ordered was nicely on the rare side and had excellent flavor. Pork chop with cardoons toothsome. The Halibut with Crazy Water "acquapazza" light and spicy. Panacotta hugely vanilla with a bordering on excessive creaminess, but the Tiramisu was on the light side so they balanced each other out.
Wine list was generous, plenty of good bottles to pick under $40.
In a city with all too many so-so Italian spots, Zuppa was a standout tonight. Recommended.
