Biancaneve Italian Flatbread: Mozzarella, Asiago, and Parmesan – $8.50
Both flatbreads feature a white sauce, and this one is actually quite good. The mozzarella and parmesan cheese blend well and the thin crust is nice and crispy.
As you can see, the cheese is quite stringy and gooey, which goes well with the crispy crust. Overall a safe, simple option.
*NEW* Sacchetti alla Boscaiola: Four-cheese Mini Beggar’s Purses filled with Sweet Sausage, Caramelized Onions, Pancetta, and Cremini Mushrooms with a Creamy Sauce – $9.50
The pasta on the outside was fine, but there wasn’t much sauce, so most of it went bare. The pasta filling tasted clearly previously frozen, which left it devoid of any flavor.
Our hopes weren’t high for this item, and now we see our premonitions were correct. Skip this!
*NEW* Cannoli Siciliani: Crisp Pastry filled with Sweet Ricotta, Chocolate, and Candied Orange – $5.25
This cannoli has been glazed in chocolate syrup, adding more sweet flavor in runny, liquid form. The cannoli is the least offensive item on the menu. It’s a little small for the price, but that’s probably a good thing, considering it tasted like it was recently defrosted. Though if you really, really want a cannoli, you won’t necessarily be disappointed by this.
Total Wine & More describes Santa Marina Pinot Grigio as “pale yellow in color, and contains aromas of citrus, nectarines, and peaches, with earthy notes. A light-bodied palate with a medium amount of acidity, and a short finish.”
Total Wine & More describes Gabbiano Chianti: “The bouquet is reminiscent of ripe plums spiced with pepper and wood nuances. The first sip reveals invigorating flavors of cherry, blackberry, and spice followed by a dry vivid finish.”
Villa Sandi describes their wine’s aroma as “…fruity and flowery with hints of ripe golden apple and small mountain flowers.” “The dry, fresh and flavorsome sensation on the palate is followed by a fruity and harmonious aftertaste.”
Christofanon Montegrande describes Fior d’Arancio as “typical of Muscat, intense but delicate, with clear reminiscent of wisteria, white flowers and citruses.”
*NEW* Italian White Sangria with Prosecco – $11.00
Usually, when a Sangria beverage of this price contains more juice than wine, we would complain. However, since the wine in this drink tasted particularly cheap and unpleasant, in this case it was somewhat of a relief. The drink was supposed to contain Prosecco, however this was unidentifiable from the lack of fizz in the drink.
*NEW* Italian Red Sangria with Cabernet Sauvignon – $11.00
Have you ever put red wine in the microwave? That’s what this is. We thought sangria came with ice and fruit, but this was just a room temperature liquid. The flavor was fruity, so it could have been really good, but as it got hotter, it was just too warm to drink.
Italian Margarita with Limoncello and Tequila – $11.00
The margarita was quite good as it tasted almost like a melting lemon ice dessert. However, there didn’t seem to be much liquor in the drink, as we didn’t taste much besides the faint hint of tequila.
Overall, this is a tasty drink, but don’t expect to get much alcohol for your money here.
