The place is adorable with an elegant, yet homey feel. I happened to notice a sign on the door about an express lunch buffet offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for $9.95. Since it was Wednesday, I figured I'd get the buffet so I could try a few different things. On the buffet that day was salad, Chicken Vesuvio, rosemary potatoes, farfalle with sausage and meatballs and raspberry and blackberry cheesecake for dessert.
I enjoyed the crisp salad with greens, tomatoes, red onion, carrots and olives and a creamy ranch dressing.
Michelle didn't have much of an appetite and she thought she'd be better going with someone she could pack up to take home if she didn't finish it. The panini she got was huge and came with a side salad. Her Panino con Pollo Caprese was fantastic (she is a great person to dine with because she always passes on a bite of her dish!) with chicken, pesto, tomato and fresh mozzarella.
Here's what I had from the buffet. All of it was wonderful. The chicken was tender and flavor-packed and the meatball melted in my mouth.
I finished off lunch with a little cheesecake bite topped with a blackberry. It was a perfect finish to a delicious meal with wonderful company in a lovely atmosphere. I look forward to heading back sometime to enjoy dinner and a glass of wine!
