We went back to our favourite Italian place for dinner. We'd sampled most of the stuff on the regular menu, so we usually order the daily specials or set menus.
This month's set dinner ($76 for 2-courses) featured House-Made Conchiglioni Pasta, tossed with Lamb Ragout with Organic Mixed Mushrooms as the main. This was hearty, earthy and yet mellow at the same time. There was none of the gamey mutton taste I so dislike. I liked this, but the BF was a little put off by the caterpillar pod-shaped pasta. I thought the pasta looked like snow pea pods, so I ate most of this, while he ate my risotto.
We also got the Zuppa Del Giorno with the set dinner, Soup-of-the-Day with Sweet Potato Potage. They'd thoughtfully separated the soup into 2 portions so the BF and I could share it. THAT's what I call good service.
I got my favourite Risotto del Giorno ($33) the daily special with Braised Pork. Today's version needed at least 10 more minutes on the cooker, the rice grains were still slightly hard. Otherwise, this was creamy and delicate.
