Lunch Menu: A collection of antipasto, pork dishes, small pizzas, cold cuts and other sliced meats.
Pick 1: Wedding Soup - I've had this many times before at other restaurants, where it was delicious, and I'm not a "difficult" diner; however, I was really disappointed with what I was given. It was a salty broth, with exactly three slices of carrot, four slices of bland sausage, kale, and one spoonful of fregola pasta in a shallow dish--for $12. If it were a $3 cup of soup, maybe I could understand what I got, but this just didn't work. I would like to give the waiter a big shout out for being really kind and accommodating when I asked to order something else. He also made sure my second pick came out quickly. So, thank you!
Pick 2: Penne (Grilled chicken thigh, Caramelized fennel, Black garlic cream sauce, Pecorino) - I figured since this had chicken and pecorino that I couldn't go wrong. Overall, this dish was a better pick. I must say that I was impressed with the chicken; it looked and tasted like sliced chicken breast. The pasta was cooked well. The sauce was a little unusual--I don't know how fennel typically tastes or how it affects other flavors--but the dish was served hot.
His Pick: Black Label Pizzette (Prosciutto Black Label, Basil, Mozzerella, Caramelized Cippolini Onions) $12 - My bf really liked this and finished it all. I tried a piece. I thought it tasted like grilled cheese, but it was still good.
Smoked Chicken Pizzette (Smoked Chicken, Caramelized onions, Parmesan, Roasted peppers, Parsley pesto, Spinach) -- why didn't I just order this the first time??
Whatever they have on the dinner menu.
