sometimes more is absolutely more

by Michelle

Last night Theo and Meg treated me to a spectacular Italian feast at one of Calgary’s finest…Centini

Our sommelier decanting a bottle of CROGNOLO TUSCANO

Meaghan ordered AHI TUNA CARPACCIO. This dish was reminiscent of Sorrento

Classic CAPRESE embellished with PROSCUITTO DI PARMA. I can not resist BUFFALO MILK MOZZARELLA

FETTUCINE FLORENTINA is bliss on a plate…cream, garlic, Reggiano Parmigiano and perfectly cooked spinach.

Theo ordered a porcini filled agnolotti in a porcini cream. As far as porcini mushrooms go, more is definitely more! He reluctantly offered Meg and me a bite which we both jumped on. Fantastic!!!!!

I ordered PAPPARDELLE SEAFOOD ARRABIATA. Perfectly balanced shrimp, calamari, tomatoes, chillies and garlic. The portion was too large for me to finish so we brought the left overs home for lunch. I thought asking to have food packaged up might seem a little tacky at such a classy joint but our waiter returned with a great looking take away bag for us to leave with.

RICOTTA CHEESECAKE because we could!

PROFITEROLES –  little crispy puffs filled with a rich creme patisserie drowning in a dark chocolate sauce. Not Italian but who cares, it was yummy!

Calgary is definitely a great town for foodies…

Thanks for reading.
