We shared two appetizers. The tomato and mozzarella salad ($8) was nicely plated. It just needed a little kick, so we added some salt. Pretty decent. It went well with the excellent bread they have there-made in house and served warm!
Not something that is normally on the menu, but I requested the combination of two of my favorite meals. Shown above is gnocchi with bolognese sauce. The pasta was good, and the sauce, while it was a meat sauce, it was more of a modern take on bolognese. Never the less, I found the dish to be tasty and proceeded to eat the whole thing.
For dessert we split this! I can’t remember what it was called, but boy was it tasty. Vanilla ice cream rolled in oreo cookie crumbs on top of a chocolate chip cookie made in a skillet. I have to say that the cookie was a little raw for my liking, but the ice cream just by itself was tasty!
The service was good-our waitress was attentive. Here’s what really did it for me: My cousins were looking for a place to get a bread bowl for a dip they were bringing to an Easter party the following day. They stopped at a place near by and couldn’t find one. The waitress told the owner/chef, Chris, and he came out and offered to make them a bread while we were eating lunch and it would be done by the time we were finished. You don’t really find that kind of service any more-and that’s what really bumped this restaurant up in my book.
