What would you order here?

Today is my 4th wedding anniversary. Tomorrow night my wife and I will go out to celebrate. We will be going to Tomasso Trattoria.

I already have my meal planned out. What would you order?

First off Happy Anniversary.

Secondly, I would probably order:

Antipasti: Crostini di Ricotta, only because I've tried versions of everything else of their antipasti. The crostini looks interesting though since I don't think I've had those flavors together before.

Primi: Tagliatelle di Farro and/or Garganelli. Both look interesting and the flavor combinations would be relatively new.
Secondi: Orratta. I've never had that fish before. I've tried the other secondi before.

Dolci: Bruschetta di Prugne: I'm not a big dessert person, so I'd rather have something fruit it in, and this looks interesting.

Interesting that so far, many people have opted for the pork entree. In the restaurants I've worked in, pork was usually one of the more least popular entrees.

pork has long received a bad rep
but when done nicely and most times with a sweet and sour or sweet and spicy edge it does do nicely
i sell alot of pork
more chicken but enough pork to do my food cost good

Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. GB..
we could probably feed you bread and water and you'd never even notice.. But what ever you've chosen, enjoy every bite and know we are wishing you both the best of all things. Salute!

OK, I now have time to look at the menu - here is what I would order:

Carciofi
Baby Artichokes with Mint,
Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Sea Salt
(or the chef's antipasto - call me crazy)

Insalata agli Agrumi
Citrus Segments, Shaved Fennel
and Mint

(oops, I forgot a course)
Garganelli
Garganelli Pasta with Zucchini Blossoms, Basil and Whole Milk Ricotta

Orratta
Whole roasted Orratta with Cipollini Onions and Baby Mustard Greens

FORMAGGI

And I would take no less than about 3 1/2 hours to complete this dinner.
