We started off with sauteed squid and peppers. The squid was cut pretty
thick which I am usually not a fan of but this was perfectly cooked and
tender. It was swimming in a great garlic jus. Second app was a simple
eggplant rolled with ricotta on a perfect and I mean perfect tomato
sauce. There were a few more apps I wanted to try like the polenta and
sausage but didn't get a chance. J had mushroom veal risotto with
white truffle. This was good but I'm not a fan of meat chunks in
risotto. I prefer veggie risotto. I had the 8 finger cavatelli. Perfectly cooked with a vodka
sauce. J had a volkswagon sized chunk of tiramisu to herself to wrap
up the tour. I had the house barolo she had a pomegranate martini. There
were like 10 other things on the menu I wanted to try. I will be going
back many times. This is one of my new favorites. 85 bucks plus tip

**I know I used "perfect" a few too many times but the whole experience was quite.......perfect.

Holla!
