I had dinner on Saturday evening with my fiancee on a recommendation by some local lawyers that eat out a lot.
Their first recommendation was the burrata (sometimes off menu). It was the special of the day for EUR 29.00. A bit pricey, however the size is huge! The burrata itself is probably the size of a small grapefruit/softball. It was served on top of a bed of arugula, half cut cherry tomatoes, balsamic, olive oil, and on the top it was covered with plenty of parma ham.
You can treat this as a meal in itself, or an appetizer that should definitely be split by at least 2 people. A 3rd could have easily been added.
Based on the same recommendation, I ordered that tagliatta di manzo, which is essentially a beefsteak salad. The plate arrived, large oval platter, with arugula, parmesan shavings, and medium-rare seared steak strips. It was good, but I would consider this an appetizer to be shared and not a main course. I should have gone with a pasta dish instead!
My eyes wondered constantly around the restaurant at the pasta dishes coming out. My fiancee chose the carbonara, which while tasted good, did not seem to be a true carbonora. It resembled pasta with alfredo sauce more than an eggy/parmesan mess. The pasta itself was terrific, thicker than spaghetti (forget the cut). I saw other dishes roaming around the small dining room...raviolis, seafood pasta, etc...
For dessert we split the tartuffo which was ok. This place will not win any awards for its desserts, but I would probably recommend a tiramisu instead on the next try.
Would I go back? I have to try the other go-to Italian places, namely Toscanini and Bussia before I make that determination.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely. The place is very cute, small, and lends to a nice atmosphere. The servers were very nice and the place is no frills, just the way I like it. Make reservations ahead of time as they only have 10 tables and 2 seatings (from what I have heard). I called on Thursday evening for a Saturday reservation and did not have a problem.
