bolognese at Prezza vs Via Matta?
Seems like it's always on the menus at both places, and I've never tried it at Prezza. And only sampled my DC's bolognese at Via Matta, which was a glorious revelation.
We're going to Prezza this Saturday and I'm wondering whether to order the gnocchi bolognese or my usuals -- ravioli di uovo or chestnut raviolini.
prezza rocks consistently, while i find via matta very good only on the rare occasions schlow is there.
i prefer bolognese with tubular pasta and am not a gnocchi fan, which is how prezza serves it.
i find the service at prezza consistently great, with zippo attitude.
right now prezza has the legendary and amazing egg ravioli which makes it worth the trip.
Both are excellent, made with high quality ingredients and having well blended flavor. I prefer Via Matta's bolognese sauce personally. The reason I get the bolognese every time I am at Via Matta and never at Prezza is due to the gnocchi preparation. I am not a huge gnocchi fan, and I much prefer the beautiful hand made tagliatelle at Via Matta.
There are so many other great things at Prezza, you probably can't go wrong either way. Depends on what you are in the mood for taste-wise that evening.
never been to via matta..but prezza is awesome. have tried almost every pasta dish from their recent menu and the gnocchi is delicious. one of my most favorite places for pasta. if you can't decide..you can always get the smaller portion of both :)
just thought i'd mention da vinci as another place for good pasta. they do a wonderful 3 course prix fixe for 33.
