m by no means a restaurant critic but, in my opinion, the only thing going for Gnocchi is that its pretty cute and very reasonably priced. Although Antipasta Misto at $8 was an absolute waste of an appetizer as it only contained about three slices of some sort of an Italian meat and three "shavings" of cheese served over some greens.
The 5 of us walked in on a Friday night and were immediately. Gnocchi is a pretty small place so it should have risen a red flag right off the bat. The place was pretty adorable, finished with Italian murals on the walls and dim lighting.
Cozze Al Manicomto (mussels) were as promised pretty generous, however we had to send them back as they did not smell or taste good. Although, as explained by the waitress, this was not the restaurants fault, I beg the differ. If I'm the head chef and I order the "larger", as they explained, mussels that were really full of excrement which resulted in the foul smell and taste, I would NOT serve them. The waitress admitted that the mussels were sent back several times that night. Funny thing is, the mussels kept coming back in at least three other dishes that we ordered.
The Calamari was pretty light and delicious. The pasta however, proved to be nothing special. Although it was tasty, it was very average. The Parmesan Alfredo sauce in my Gnocchi Verde proved to be a little on the heavy side. I'm not being picky at this point but will still mention that Alla Saltimbocca was a little too salty for my taste, although im sure it was due to the prosciutto and it was probably supposed to be that way.
