This restaurant has been reviewed by Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives on the Food Network. The restaurant taping won't be on DDD until October 21st but we saw good reviews on TripAdvisor so we gave it a try. Loved that it was locally owned and run by a husband and wife team - he is the chef and she runs the front of the house.
Our dinner was simply delicious from start to finish. The tomato soup and crostini is the best we've ever had anywhere. The salad had chunks of walnuts and olives along with other salad ingredients in a light olive oil dressing. My husband ordered the Pappardelle al Pesto pasta dish and you could tell the noodles were homemade. My dish was even better - the Agnolotti which was beef brisquet (cooked for hours in a red wine sauce) ravioli with ricotta and parmegiano cheeses. It was melt in your mouth good. My only complaint is there were only two small chunks of brisquet on the plate with the ravioli.
For dessert we tried the vanilla Panna Cotta with strawberries. Niether of us had eaten this dish before and we loved it. It was kind of like a creme brulee but softer, creamier, and covered with a strawberry sauce layer. It just melted in our mouths. Heavenly.
I wish this restaurant was in our home town because my husband and I would become regular patrons for sure!
