Indulge in our “Portobello Stack Appetizer,” an Italian culinary tour de force that celebrates the earthy flavors of grilled Portobello mushrooms delicately layered with slices of smoky roasted eggplant, succulent peppers, and sun-kissed heirloom tomatoes. Each ingredient is thoughtfully stacked to preserve its unique taste and texture. The dish is completed with a tantalizing drizzle of our homemade pesto sauce that perfectly marries fresh basil, garlic, Parmesan, and olive oil. Crumbled feta cheese adds a creamy, tangy dimension, while toasted pine nuts impart a subtly sweet crunch. This appetizer is a testament to the beauty of simple, fresh ingredients coming together in a vibrant symphony of flavors. Elevate your dining experience with a glass of our crisp Prosecco. It’s fine bubbles and bright acidity, complemented by an aromatic palette of green apples, white peaches, and honeysuckle, cut through the richness of the Portobello and the pesto while echoing the freshness of the tomatoes and accentuating the smoky undertones of the roasted vegetables.
Our “Chicken Roulade” is an unforgettable journey through the textures and flavors of traditional Italian gastronomy. We take a pasture raised chicken breast and roll it with an enticing stuffing of sautéed mushrooms, fresh spinach, tangy sundried tomatoes, and a blend of rich Gouda and creamy mozzarella cheeses. The filled chicken breast is then carefully roasted until golden and served over a bed of wilted spinach salad, adding a touch of freshness to balance the savory filling. To heighten the experience, a warm dressing of pancetta—crisp and slightly sweet—brings a smoky depth that perfectly complements the chicken. We highly recommend pairing this dish with a glass of our Nebbiolo wine. This red wine from the Piedmont region of Italy presents an intoxicating mix of rose, anise, wild herbs, cherry, and truffle aromas with a robust body, high tannins, and generous acidity. The wine’s complex profile harmonizes with the robustness of the roulade and the earthiness of the mushrooms, while its lively acidity cuts through the rich cheese, creating a balanced and memorable dining experience.
Our specialty, “Halibut Alla Linguine,” presents wild-caught Alaskan Halibut carefully pan-seared to perfection. This exquisite fillet is served over a bed of classic linguine tangled with succulent clams sautéed in a rich mixture of butter, aromatic garlic, zesty lemon, fragrant parsley, and our chef’s selection of white wine. Crowning the dish is our salsa fresca – a vibrant blend of fresh, hand-picked heirloom cherry tomatoes, crisp red onions, and fragrant basil, all marinated in delicate olive oil and white wine vinaigrette. For a fully rounded culinary experience, we recommend pairing it with our Garganega wine from the romantic Veneto region of Northern Italy. This charming white delivers a complex bouquet of citrus, green apple, and almond, complemented by light floral notes and a hint of minerality that perfectly enhances the natural flavors of the halibut and clams.
