Signatures Dishes & Dishes Sampled
We began our foray into Italian cuisine with a fresh bread basket that came with an impressive and unique oil and balsamic vinaigrette topped with fresh cheese. Our starters, Carpaccio di Manzo, Caprese Salad, and Arancini Balls, were grand in both size and flavor, giving us a true taste of Italy right off the hop. From the thinly sliced beef tenderloin with Parmesan cheese and olive oil, to the pesto and fresh mozzarella, each bite was filling and flavorful. For mains, we chose the Mushroom Risotto, Shrimp Pasta, Mixed Seafood Grill, and Grilled Lamb Chops. The risotto was adorned with truffle oil and Parmesan cheese and exceeded expectations! The pasta came with a healthy portion of shrimp and the mixed seafood and grilled lamb both perfectly hit the mark when it came to taste, quality, and authenticity. We then happily moved on to dessert, a Panna Cotta topped with fruit and Tiramisù that came in a martini glass, tying in all of the amazing flavors of Northern Italy.
