We went nice and early so that our little peanut wouldn't be disturbing date night diners. We were clearly not the only people with that idea because there were a number of other families with small children there just before 6 on a Saturday. And hallelujah, she behaved, and we got some much needed adult time.
We sampled the Fried Rhode Island Style Calamari and a pizza with Crispy Eggplant, Red Sauce, Capicola Ham, Shallot, Romano and Sweet Grass Lil’ Moo. The calamari was light and crispy, and I loved the addition of spicy little peppers. It is a pretty large portion, so theoretically the two of us shouldn't finished it, but let's just say I did it for the blog...
I've been obsessing over eggplant lately, so I was psyched to try the eggplant pie. I really liked the chewy, crunchy crust. The Mr. likes a doughier crust better, but he still scarfed down three pieces, so he clearly still enjoyed it!
The pizza is pretty light on cheese, so I felt like all things considered, it's reasonably healthy. The only bummer for me is the eggplant cut very small, and I didn't get a lot of eggplant taste from it. That said, it was still very tasty, but I got more sauce and ham flavors from it than anything else.
It's still early days, but overall I was impressed and definitely intend to go back and sample some of the other items on the menu. The meatball with pickled banana peppers is sounding pretty good to me right about now...
