We ate at Al Tramezzo because of the wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor. Let me now add mine to the list. This is a special restaurant which you shouldn't miss if you're in the area.
When we arrived at 7:55 PM, the restaurant was empty, so we were a little concerned. But fear not -- the restaurant started to fill shortly afterward. Filippo was our waiter, who is also the son of the owner. He speaks excellent English and was the consummate host. He explained everything and helped us with ordering.
We started with a delicious bottle of Falanghina white wine, followed by an amuse bouche from the chef, of shrimp in a sauce, that was outstanding. Then we had grilled octopus in a cream of potato with black truffle, which was the VERY BEST octopus we've ever had. Now that's a pretty great way to start a meal. We followed it with a ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta, topped with butter and parmesan cheese -- good, but not great. Lastly we shared a turbot fish with sliced potatoes, that was really delicious.
To end the meal, Filippo brought out a few complimentary pastries and a strange high alcohol herb elixir. The pastries were great and the elixir strong and strange.
All in all, it was one of the best meals we've ever had. So good that we're bringing friends back in a couple of days. To top it off, the cost was only €79.50, which included a bottle of wine. I wish we could move this restaurant closer to home.
The restaurant is off the beaten path, in a residential neighborhood, with easy parking on the street. Make sure you visit this wonderful place.
