This was our first visit so we tried to have a sampling of various items. My wife and I ordered and shared family style. The bread, olive oil, various olives and bread sticks were all excellent! We had seconds (or was it thirds?) on the bread and oil. We started with the tuna sashimi and cold vegetable dishes, all very good, especially the lentils with beets and eggplant with goat cheese. Next we sampled the meatballs and the octopus with garbanzo beans. The octopus was the best we've ever had! I highly recommend. We found the meatballs in tomato sauce to be slightly bland however. It needed more salt. For the main course we shared the short ribs and the lasagna. The short ribs were quite tasty and tender but nothing special. One of my wife's favorite dishes is short ribs so we've had several experiences at many restaurants to compare. The lasagna, however, was quite unique. It didn't taste like traditional lasagna (I'm 1/2 Italian) but the more we ate, the more we liked it! The homemade pasta and sauces made for a unique experience, quite smooth tasting and creamy.
I have to say the only disappointment was the dessert. By that time we were pretty full and only ordered some gelato so admittedly I can't say anything about the other desserts. The pistachio was not very flavorful and lacked depth. The best one was the fig and walnut flavor, followed by the coconut. We found the gelato to lack the creaminess of other gelatos we've had in Italy and several other premium gelato establishments.
The service was excellent and our waiter helped guide us through the menu with good suggestions.
