An authentic taste of real Italian cuisine. I visited Italy a few years ago and longed for a local restaurant that served true Italian food without driving into a big city. Based on the reviews, we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. The waiter, Devon, brought us a basket with 4 slices of fresh Italian bread, and a dish of 4 olives and extra virgin olive oil served with a spoon. We ordered a "special" appetizer which was antipasti for 2, $14. It had two delicious miniature fresh crab cakes, one with a red pepper coulis and the other with a lemon-curry tarragon sauce. There were a half dozen baby mozzarella balls and roasted cherry tomatoes, and thin slices of 3 delicious Italian meats. It didn't seem like a lot of food but it did the job and awakened our palates for our entrees .My husband ordered Aragosta e Gamberi Ravioli con Basilico e Brandy $20 which was a flavorful freshly made ravioli filled with lobster and shrimp, served with a brandy cream sauce and cherry tomatoes. I had Pappardelle with 3 large shrimp and 3 pan seared sea scallops in lemon vodka sauce served over melt- in -your -mouth fresh egg noodles. I wanted to lick my plate! $21 The waiter recommended the most delicious white wine to go with it. $10 per) I ordered tira misu for dessert to go, ($8) and it was delicious later at home. The food couldn't have been better, the service was quick and attentive. Sure this isn't the Olive Garden, it's a place for true foodies to enjoy. It's also more money than I would like to spend but it was worth every dime. We dined outside on the patio and there were 5 tables for 4 set up. You are sitting elbow to elbow with other patrons and we didn't enjoy sitting next to a rather boisterous group. But that it not the restaurant's fault. I took a peek at the lunch menu and noted that there is a variety of Panini for $8 and $9. By the way, free parking and the place is located in a quaint shopping mall on the Plymouth waterfront. I look forward to returning for lunch, and for our next special dinner. It truly is an unforgettable gem.
