I started with calamari which was lightly battered and crispy. It came with some slightly spicy marinara sauce and a splash of lemon. Done just so. D's eggplant appetizer looked good too, he said it was well done. I usually stay away from anything with cheese in it and this dish had lots.
|Calamari - Quickly fried, spicy marinara, lemon|
|Eggplant Involtini - Herbed ricotta, fresh mozzarella, spicy marinara|
|Tagliatelle - Dungeness crab, lemon, garlic, scallions, butter|
We had agreed to eat light today and ordered pasta for the mains. The pasta was well done but I felt that the butter and lemon overpowered the crab...not quite to my taste...besides I had eaten the whole big plate of calamari and was rather full.
D's dish of duck bolognese was very flavourful and tasty.
|Limoncello Meringue Tart - Blueberry compote, lemon cream sorbetto|
D convinced me (it really wasn't very hard) to have some dessert and we shared the limoncello meringue tart. The blueberry compote and lemon cream sorbetto was excellent and I had some mint tea. Isn't the presentation of the tea cute?
