The bread was grilled and melted in your mouth. Not hard and crusty like some of the others. Wes loves calamari and theirs is lightly breaded and served with a light tomato sauce. Yummy!! All of us liked the fried artichoke hearts the best. No one had ever had them before. I would go back just to have them. They are called Carcciofi Fritti. I did not know that all of their soups are vegetarian based. Maybe that is why I saw several of my Adventist friends in there. The pasta fagoli and the minestrone are good and they also have a soup of the day everyday, cream of cauliflower today. The veal was the best I have had in a long time. It is called dama Bianca….more than great. The shrimp scampi (scampi al diavola) was also excellent. I would definitely order it again. The filet medallions (mignon alvino rosso) was so tender you really didn't need a knife. Wes is a meat eater and loved this dish. We also had a pasta dish and we all were crazy for it. It was fettuccine viviana , fresh spinach, sun dried tomatoes, grilled chicken and a splash of pinot grigio- light and very flavorful. We also tried 3 deserts: Tiramisu, Creme Brulee, and Cannolli. Our favorite the Creme Brulee.
