With our friends, we decided to try this restaurant. The meal was just great. As usual, my orders were strongly based on the suggestion from the waitress, very gentle and professional. The dishes were all very well looking and with great flavor. The environment was...soft and relaxing. A very good place where to spend some relaxing time and enjoying good Italian food.More
Really excellent local cuisine but the wait between plates was rather long. That we managed to sit for a 2-hour lunch (and not even be aware of it) is astonishing, but we had our own little quiet corner and that was perfect for our 2...dogs. I would gladly eat here again.More
We had booked for a table of 5 at 8:30 pm. There was not much of the crowd when we walked in.
We all had either primi piati and secondly or a starter and primi piati. The whole meal took us 3 hours!
Needless to...say that we skipped dessert and coffee because we all had enough of the waiting and disorderly service. We did not manage to have more than 3 people at any time to eat together while the other two were waiting for their dish.
Staff was obviously busy but on the other hand not very attentive nor showing much concern with the endless wait !
The food was excellent and wine was priced at a reasonable level. It leaves an uncomfortable and mixed feeling that this could have been a wonderful outing and eating experience if customer service had leveled with the food.
Definitely not worth the 5 or 4 star rating...not to mention the Michelin recognition !More
Our dinner at La Pignata was very memorable. We arrived early and in the course of speaking with the owner's son, Ezio, learned he spent time in Belleville, N.J. where I once lived. After seating us and discussing many tempting items on the menu, Ezio...suggested the tasting menu, as with smaller portions we'd be able to sample more dishes. Each of the items seemed to have its roots in the 'poverty' style once driven by economic conditions so many years ago, but updated with contemporary techniques and presentation. First: Bruschetta with green vinegar peppers. Second: pancotto all'arianese: a beautiful, moist mound of bitter greens and stale bread, topped with a criss-cross of paper-thin lard to impart flavor, and red pepper threads. Third: sformatino di baccala: creamy baccala on a bed of broccoli puree topped with steamed broccoli and 'crunchy' peppers. Fourth: house made cicatelli pasta with sauce. Fifth: caramele di fave:pasta shapes stuffed with fave, cheese, potato. Sixth:Salsice/Sausage with potatoes and red peppers. Each of these dishes was beautifully presented, hot, and absolutely delicious.The chef really understood how to coax flavors out of these ingredients. Of course, we had no room for dessert! Many diners ate pizza, for which this restaurant is also famous. A delicious and less pricey option. We had a wonderful evening, would not hesitate to recommend it and would love to return. There were many more locals than travelers the night we dined there; always a good sign. Two six-course dinners were 58 euro, our wine a DOCG was 31 euro. A truly memorable meal, well worth the price.More
Pizza is absolutely to try, because it's excellent. You can taste different kind of pizzas, very particular, such as with black mozzarella, made with 5 cereals etc... Nothing to say, just congratulations!
