Going to Falai tonight, despite warnings from below. Please, someone who likes the place, tell me what you enjoy eating there? Thanks.
I have been to falai many times. The scene is sometimes annoying, but the food is consistently delicious.
Go for the short ribs and the gnudi.
I enjoyed it. Portions were somewhat small, but everything was good - we had the gnudi, branzino, and arctic char. babba for dessert was good too.
Went to Falai on Sunday for the first time. Tuna carpaccio & zuppetta were very good. Had taglierini with rock shrimp & ramps (a special) and gnudi which were also very good. Cod mantecato also good. Desserts - baba was fantastic. Millefoglie with orange flower pastry cream was a bit too perfumy for me. Panna cotta was also good. All in all, an enjoyable meal, waitstaff was very attentive. Food, however, is very fru fru. If you prefer a heartier, more rustic Italian meal - this is not the place for you.
When we went, I loved the gnudi (made with spinach). Actually generally all of the dishes were very good. And the breads they bring around are particularly tasty too.
