Crispo, family style.
Hello all. Thanks to your suggestions I've chosen Crispo for a party (I do know there are mixed feelings about the food). I may have to do family style due to the size of the party. I would choose three appetizers (from either the antipasti or affetatti sections) and three entrees (from either the pasta or secondi sections. What do you suggest, keeping in mind I have a few veggies and a few non-pork eaters. What should I stay away from? Thanks.
The menu is not always the same, but here are my favorites that are usually available:
mozzarella with roasted peppers
stuffed zucchini blossoms
sausage stuffed sage leaves
spaghetti with meat balls
veal breast parmigian
porchetta (not for your non-pork eaters but it's soooo good)
Fish selections vary but are always a solid choice.
I haven't tried the gnocchi since they changed it, but I used to love it when it was made with duck. Now it may be good for the vegetarians.
I'm not much help for the vegetarians but:
Definitely the carbonara, its the best I've ever had anywhere and the one I imitate when I cook it at home.
Bone Marrow "Arrosto Origanato"
Caramelized Cauliflower pine nuts & currants WITH the prosciutto over top (they do it both ways...so maybe omit the proscuitto for the non pork eaters / vegetarians)
Trofie al Prosciutto "San Daniele"
