Upon receiving an invitation from a friend, i was able to join some people for a pizza adventure.
we entered this very small restaurant and was quickly seated at a round table.
heres is what we were greeted with.
inside the envelope, there was a post card along with your utensils (fork, knife, napkin)
here's the water container provided for each table.
it was kinda nice how the waiters came around and poured us water everytime our glass was empty.
after looking at the menu, some decided to get some appetizers
oregano salami: very thin slices of salami with a hit of oregano. you cant taste the oregano unless you breathe in a little while biting into the salami.
Bone Marrow al forno: interesting to say the least. i took a bite of it and i must say that i'm not a fan of the texture. it tastes like you're biting into a chunk of grounded fat. the garlic bread was very garlicy and it went well with the bone marrow...
then our pizza's came out.... :)
squash blossoms, tomato and burrata : this was delicious. the cheese on the top tasted soo fresh. it was a little odd because you didnt expect the cheese to be cold. but still very good.
tomato, mozzarella, sausage, salami, bacon and guanciale : i didnt get to try but they said it was very good.
prosciutto di parma, rucola, tomato, mozzarela: this one was pretty good. prosciutto was a bit on the salty side for my liking but other than that good.
ok i dont know what this pizza was....fail i know.....
here is what i ordered :
pizza alla benno: speck, pineapple, jalapeno, mozzarella and tomato : a fancy hawaiian pizza if you needed to describe it...thats how i'd describe it. the jalapeno's were freaken spicy and the speck which is smoked prosciutto was very good (not too salty)
when going to a place you must get dessert right?? :)
Caramel coppetta with marshmallow sauce & Spanish salted peanuts: wow this was like delicious amazing party in your mouth. the caramel coppetta tasted soo good and when you put a little bit of everything inside your mouth it really was a sweet and salty party.
this picture doesnt do justice to this pie.
banana gelatto pie with chocolate sauce topped with whipped cream and hazelnut.
this pie was very good. not as sweet as the other dessert but if you're a banana flavor fan you'll enjoy this.
thank you friends for inviting me to dinner :)
