Bolognese: Linguine w parmesan & house made Italian ragu - 2+

J's comment > pasta well cooked, just the right level of al dente; generous amts of meat that surprisingly clung to the pasta instead of falling through to the bottom as most bolognese dishes do; FYI this dish is usually served w penne instead of linguine, I asked for the sub.

Lobster Mac & Cheese: Atlantic lobster claws, garlic mascarpone, peas, chive oil - 2

J's comment > not bad, very cheesy, but not much lobster flavor other than the two claws (the description DOES say lobster claws, but I didn't think it was truly only that...); the claws weren't bad, but definitely needs more flavor than 'just' cheese

Chocolate Calzone: Mascarpone & chocolate hazelnut in a warm flatbread - 2

J's comment > not bad; essentially a chocolate pizza folded up (well really, that's the definition of a 'calzone'); chocolate quite generous but w the size of the dough, I think it could have used even more chocolate; dough kinda on the thick side, but soft enough to be OK

Nutella hot chocolate (non-alcoholic) - 2

J's comment > not bad, nutella flavor present but on the faint side; FYI, watch out for the liquor tax that this drink might cost you - the management promised to take it off for us and they did, but not sure if they're going to remember to do this for the next customer
