Antipasti: There is a large selection of menu options to begin. Consider the charcuterie board filled with cold-cut meats and selected cheeses to share. The roasted beet salad with artisan greens, walnuts, and gorgonzola is a favorite.
Pizza: Baked in traditional fired ovens, enjoy a variety of pizzas. The Quattro Stagioni (Four Season) pizza includes tomatoes, mozzarella, ham, mushrooms, artichokes, and olives. Try the Mortadella with white cream sauce, mortadella sausage, and pistachio for something different.
Pasta: Enjoy classics like lasagna, a squash ravioli sautéed in saffron with zucchini, or the cheese tortelloni in a rich, creamy tomato vodka sauce. The linguini Vongole is served with clams, cherry tomatoes in a white wine garlic sauce. The star of the show is the Tonnarelli al Aragosta which is thick pasta served with a 6 oz. main lobster tail in a light tomato sauce.
Meat: Options include a braised lamb shank, filet mignon in a brandy peppercorn sauce, Australian lamb chops, veal parmigiana, and a chicken breast in Marsala wine. For a very hearty dish, order the 32 oz. porterhouse steak.
Seafood: Three simple choices here of grilled salmon, grilled bass, and the Cioppino which includes mussels, clams, calamari, shrimp, salmon, and half of a Main lobster tail.
