This was our Plan B on a night when Pomodori was unexpectedly closed, and our first visit here. We arrived fairly early on Memorial Day Monday evening without a reservation, and were quickly seated. Service was very attentive but wasn’t overwhelming, although they did seem eager to remove plates quickly. Our amuse-bouche was a slice of pear with gorgonzola and a champagne vinaigrette. We tried the Capesante e Lenticchie appetizer -- pan seared jumbo scallops on a bed of beluga lentils finished with a truffle parmigianino sauce. Because we mentioned sharing them to the server, she had them split onto two separate plates. For the main course, I had the lobster ravioli. This was five triangles of pasta stuffed with lobster meat in a beurre blanc cream sauce with chives and chopped tomatoes. The serving was not especially large, but it was very rich and creamy and was delicious. Husband ordered the orecchiette e gamberi (ear-shaped pasta with local shrimp, cannellini beans, prosciutto, broccoli in a white wine lemon butter sauce). This was almost like a stir-fry, very lightly done, with a fair amount of garlic, and was a large delicious bowl of food. We hadn’t planned to have dessert, but ended up deciding to share a molten chocolate cake, which takes a few minutes to bake. It came with a scoop of ice cream and garnished with strawberries, and was a lovely end to the meal.
The restaurant is very pleasant, decorated to look fairly ancient with wall murals in one of the rooms and ruched fabric covering a long wall in the other room.
