To start with we each had a slice of Bruschetta with freshly chopped tomato, garlic, basil, olive oil, and vinegar served on slices of toasty warm bread. Then we each had chosen our pasta dishes for the main course - a rather filling and creamy Pesto Penne for myself with home-made pesto comprising of basil, pine nuts, parmesan and garlic in a light cream sauce garnished with a sprinkle of cheese.
MsFlatWhite tries the home-made sweet potato gnocchi freshly tossed in their carbonara sauce that had Bacon bits, egg and herbs in a light fresh cream sauce and a good dusting of cheese for her dish to complete it off. The gnocchi were soft and tender being not too overly soggy or firm that it would stick to each other at all. The different taste comes from using the sweet potato instead of a usual potato one which proved to be an interesting take on a popular Italian plate up.
