La Caesar for Two     18

Traditionally made with romaine lettuce and croutons, the salad is tossed in a dressing of lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, anchovies, garlic, Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese and black pepper. While our Caesar is served with a similar homemade dressing, our presentation is remarkably different. We take a whole, locally grown head of romaine and finish it with our dressing and croutons.

Melenzana ca Muddicca    20

This dish holds a special place in his heart, as he quite literally, took a page from his Mamma Pina's recipes book. He starts with a whole eggplant and stuffs it with ham, tomatoes, raisins, breadcrumbs and mozzarella. It is finished, baked in an oven, slowly for hours.

Gnocchi Fritti & Alpino al Forno  25

"Fried" gnocchi is a traditional staple and while it is not what we have come to know as gnocchi, it is pure decadence. These "fried" gnocchi are not actually pasta, and there is neary a potato to be found. Instead they are delicate pastries that true Italians call Gnocchi Fitti. They are served with prosciutto and a baked Alpino cheese.

Polipo & Arancia    18

An all time Sicilian favorite, Spanish octopus alla griglia (grilled octopus) served in a spicy, balanced paprika sauce. Served with cous cous, blood oranges and potatoes finished with a crunchy pistachio pesto.

Piatto della Trattoria    40

This appetizer is meant to be an experience, not just an appetizer. We have put together a sampling of cured meats and cheeses that are served in individual servings. Each is a tasting meant to savor and explore.
