The elegant tiled floors, vines hanging along the walls, and wood grain finishes enhance the feeling as though you’ve hopped on a plane to Italy.
True to the Italian region, you’ll find a variety of pastas and pizzas done to perfection on the menu. With small plate options, you’ll get to try an assortment of creations. While you’re there, be sure to try some of the creatively inspired dishes that take familiar ingredients to new heights such as the Quinotto, which is creamy quinoa with mixed mushrooms seasoned with truffle oil, Pumpkin Ravioli; homemade pasta in a creamy smoked cheese sauce with pine nuts and a touch of cinnamon, Beet Gnocchi with creamy goat cheese, and Tequenos; flaky dough with ooey gooey cheese served with a guava sauce for dipping, just to name a few. For the health conscious, your palette can be equally thrilled by their fabulous spinach quinoa salad or tuna steak entrée. Plus, none of their dishes are fried!
Save room for dessert and drinks for an even more elemental oomph. Just one bite of the Nutella pizza, coconut tres leches or oreo cheesecake will heighten your enjoyment.
