Poor Italian

October 31, 2013

Gamberoni Proluciale: Large tiger prawns prepared w garlic, shallots, tomato, white wine and extra virgin olive oil - 2+

J's comment > sauce very tasty; although the prawns were obviously not fresh out of the tank à la Chinese style, they were still pretty good for defrosted shrimp

Pappardelle con Brasato D'Agnello: Broad pasta, braised lamb, seasoned San Marzano tomato sauce w red wine, caramelized onion and mixed mushrooms - 2+

Paccheri e Salsiccia: House-made pasta, spicy sausage, caramelized onion, San Marzano pomodoro sauce & fresh basil - 2+

J's comment > we requested our pastas to be served 'family style', hence they were both presented on the same plate. Both pastas were well cooked and the accompanying meats were equally tasty.

Goat Cheese and Poached Pear salad: Panko crusted goat cheese, toasted walnuts, candied cranberries & poached pears on baby spinach, served in a shallot vinaigrette - 2

J's comment > cheese was fried beautifully, but the pears were obviously not ripe yet

Complimentary bread and butter - 2

The P.I. Tiramisu: Mascarpone cheese, savoiardi cookies, hint of Marsala & panna - 2+

J's comment > very moist and creamy, just the way I like it
