Being a huge Kitchen Nightmare fan (Fox). I had to try the Levanti's in Beaver. I tried to get a reservation during the taping of the show but there was no way I was getting in. I must disclose that I hadn't visited Levanti's prior to my recent visit so I can't compare to what they used to serve. I spoke with the owner, and he told me that Gordon gutted the menu from old style Italian to a new "Amerian Bistro" fare. I was pleasantly surprised. The menu is simple: appetizers (8), salads (4), pizza's (4), entree's (5) and desserts (4). I started with the Mussels (Pancetta, shallots, garlic, white wine, butter and herbs $9). They were delicious. As good as any I have had in Baltimore or San Francisco. My only wish was that they had italian bread so I could sop up the broth, but the owner told me that Gordon said 'no bread'. For the entree I had the Margarita pizza. Gordon bought them a new stone pizza oven so I figured I'd give it a try. It was delicious. The crust was slightly crispy on the edges and definitely had tossed due to the oblong shape. For dessert I had for the first time, Vanilla Panna Cotta with homemade Pistachio brittle. It was unbelievable. Served in a little cup, the Panna Cotta (I still don't know what that means), was like a semi-runny vanilla flavored custard. Mixed in with the Panna Cotta was pieces of the Pistachio Brittle. The brittle was the best I had ever had. I wish they'd have given me a straw to suck out the last of the Panna Cotta. My wife had the burger. I had a bite and it was delicious, especially the balsamic onion jam. Please take into account that I am no food expert. I eat at Subway, fast food (don't tell my wife) and chain restaurants, but I really like this place. We have been back since this review. I hope the locals support Levanti's although I know that change can be difficult for the citizens of Beaver County. I would say that the pricing is moderate. Entree's price from $12 for a burger with balsamic onion jam, lettuce and cheddar to $31 for a 9oz NY steak with red wine jus, truffle butter, potato puree and wild mushrooms. This place may be a shock to the locals who have never tried truffle butter or balsamic onion jam! The food is presented very nicely. You can see the Gordon Ramsay touch on all the meals. They don't take reservations and don't open until 5 or 6pm. We had no problem getting in on a Friday night, but I don't know how long that will last. Enjoy!
