Day Sixty-Eight - Osterio Papavero (4.11.14)

We enjoyed a local Italian restaurant this evening for dinner with our out-of-town friends Meg and Jay. The meal started with Grand Piatto dei Salumi and drinks. What a great way to start!

For an entree, Potter enjoyed Antipasta di Mari and Katie enjoyed Tortellacci Gorgonzola e Noci. We all rounded out the meal with a flourless chocolate cake and vanilla bean ice cream.

Descriptions:

Salumi Misti (Grand Piatto dei Salumi) – an assortment of house-cured meats served with homemade giardiniera

Antipasto di Mare – mixed appetizer of fresh seafood. 


Tortellacci Gorgonzola e Noci -
housemade tortellacci, stuffed with fresh ricotta and walnuts, served with a sweet gorgonzola cream sauce

Opinions

Katie: Oh man, this place was DELICIOUS! Everything we had was very good. The appetizer had about 7 different meats and 2 different cheeses; sorry we can't remember all of them. My entree was great; for having a cream sauce it was fairly light. Good portion size. The dessert was very good as well. I love when cake comes with vanilla bean ice cream too! :)

Potter: This place was amazing. The appetizer was so good. If you are a meat-eater you have got to stop by and try it. If you're a sea-food lover give their antipasto di mare a try. Mine had a clam and mussel broth mixture, an octopus with a red pepper sauce, and a monkfish pate. All three were wonderful and completely new to me, it was a delicious dish.
