Sfoglia Di Melanzane Alla Parmigiana

Sfoglia Di Melanzane Alla Parmigiana

Sfoglia Di Melanzane Alla Parmigiana ($9.90) – Baked layered eggplant, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and parmesan. The parmigiana was pretty mediocre, it was severely lacking in cheese, and was quite a disappointment.

Pizzoccheri Della Valtellina

Pizzoccheri Della Valtellina

Pizzoccheri Della Valtellina ($13.90) – Home-made whole grain pasta with butter, sage, potato, cheese. We ordered the Pizzoccheri Della Valtellina, considering that it was the chef specialty, and it looked pretty unique. However, we were once again disappointed by our choice. When we broke apart the pizza crust, what welcomed us was a mess of vegetables. In fact, it looked like a vegetable soup. The filling was a haphazard combination of vegetables, potato cubes, brown whole grain pasta and cheese. The potato cubes were quite hard and crunchy. The brown grain pasta was pretty tasteless and we could not tell any uniqueness in taste. The sauce was very diluted and watery, just like a soup. It would definitely be more appropriate to have a thicker and richer sauce. The pizza crust covering the pasta exuded a charred fragrance, but resembled more like Indian naans.

Torta Pistocchi

Torta Pistocchi

The Torta Pistocchi ($8.90) was pretty petite, and reminded us of Torte. Indeed, it was rich, smooth and dense – a mouthful of chocolate fudge. But for that price, we didn’t feel that it was worth it.
