Octopus Carpaccio w pimenton & limoncello - 2+

J's comment > loved the layering of the super-thin octopus giving it extra texture; comparable to Bishop's octopus carpaccio, but this dish had more octopus on it; flavor of dressing enhanced rather than overwhelm the actual octopus  

House made burrata - 2+

J's comment > extremely creamy, but unfortunately not much flavor (yes, I know burrata is not supposed to have much of a flavor, but I still prefer burratas w just a tad more flavor); this was more a texture burrata to accompany the other flavored items on the dish, which whilst not bad, wasn't completely what I wanted

Hand made ravioli w spinach, bufala mozzarella & tomato - 2

J's comment > not bad; tad more dough on the ring than I prefer, filling light, but would have loved more sauce; FYI, loved the 'UFO look' of these raviolis ;)

Zuppa Inglese Al Limoncello (trifle) - 2

J's comment > not bad, but trifle texture a tad stiff; borderline too sour; loved the lemon paper-thin crisp

Tiramisu: Coffee, amaretto, mascarpone - 2

J's comment > not bad, but I unfortunately compared it to Croissanterie La Marseillaise's which just destroys all competition
