we went out to our favourite little italian restaurant for their great early bird specials. 4 courses, a drink, and coffee for $14. the portions are just right so while you don't walk out with a doggie bag, you waddle out stuffed.
we shared everything, starting with bufala mozzarella en carozzo, and oddly enough, snails marinara
, although they weren't sea snails...
the snails were good as usual, and the mozzarella was a big, gooey wedge of sweet, creamy, buffalo mozz in an interesting crust that reminded me if a beer batter.
then we had house salads in a creamy house made lemon and garlic vinaigrette.
for entrees, we shared tilapia oreganata, veal pizzaola, and chicken parm. sides of freshly made fusilli.
desserts, not shared
, were chocolate cake, lemon - coconut cake, and vanilla ice cream.
