Buffalo Mozzarella w Castelvetrano Olives, Fresh Basil and House-made Bread - 2+

J's comment > mmmm... the buffalo mozzarella was SOOO soft and creamy! Just like a burrata!

Bocconcini fritti - 2+

J's comment > very cheesy when you bite into this, very well done

Beef Carpaccio w Salsa Verde, Piave Vecchio and Crispy Shallots - 2

J's comment > not bad, but all the other flavors on the plate overwhelmed the actual beef taste which is why I got this to begin with...

Fried Cauliflower w Spicy Aioli, Chickpeas, Herbs and Parmesan Cheese - 2

Pappardelle w Classic Bolognese and Fresh Parmesan - 2

J's comment > OMG, what a disappointment! Although not bad, it certainly wasn't nearly as great as I hoped their pasta dish would be. Kudos though, to getting a great mix of the bolognese; I find w other spaghetti bolognese the meat usually slides through the noodles to sit at the bottom for you to find, w this dish you get equal amts of pasta and meat.

Panna Cotta w Red Wine Poached Prunes and Biscotti - 2+

J's comment > VERY well done panna cotta! Biscotti was slightly stale though.

Olive Oil Cake w Confit Oranges and Whipped Ricotta - 2+

J's comment > the ricotta works really well w this cake, and isn't just a decoration, like whipped cream (although highly appreciated) next to desserts I've had in the past.

Chocolate Budino w Whipped Cream and Hazelnuts - 2+

Complimentary Monk mints - 2

2014 Dine Out menu (runs until Feb 2)

J's comment > the regular menu is available as well during this period; FYI your party has to choose which menu (Dine Out or regular) to all order from, you can get additional stuff from the regular menu if you all do Dine Out, but everyone has to order from the same menu.
