The menu lists homely comforts and every item was as deliciously sounding as the next. Given the ridiculous prices many restaurants are charging these days, I appreciate the gentle pricing and generous portions. I can imagine it would make a really awesome place for a party or small wedding. Rather envious of the people staying around there.
A must-have is the Traditional Roman Schiacciata. Roman what? Cheese and truffle cream squished between cracking bread. It is ok, you don't need to know how to pronounce the dish to enjoy it. I absolutely loved this! It arrived noticeably late into our meal but we relished every single bite.
Another signature dish of theirs is the Porchetta. Though some of the leaner parts were slightly dry, it is worthy of a try, especially when you get crackling skin and fat all in one bite.
Since this wasn't a steak house, I didn't have great expectations for the ribeye. But the kitchen treated it with due respect. Perfect medium rare, hearty and quite a slab, considering it was only $38.
