Ciao Bella

October 10, 2014

Lasagna Della Mamma: Layers of pasta, meat sauce, cheese & bechamel, mamma's recipe - 2

J's comment > overcooked pasta, like really soft; tomato sauce too tangy; cheese had a passable stringy texture but was on the stiff / hard side; decent amt of meat; more like a cafeteria style lasagna

Complimentary bread - 2

J's comment > warm but firm, would have loved some butter with this

House made tiramisu - 2

J's comment > not bad; very moist lady fingers, creamiest mascarpone I've ever had in a tiramisu, clearly defining texture as a mascarpone and not just heavy whipped cream; very rich and creamy; coffee flavor present but could be stronger; FYI, the menu calls this a 'mascarpone cheesecake'.... um.... huh?!

Extra Comment
FYI, during lunch, it's 50% off all pastas. There's a 2 course lunch special too, which is a penne pasta w minestrone soup for $12.99
