Dinner @ Cafe Latte

I can't believe it was early February when we last dined here so we are well overdue for another visit. The restaurant is quite dimly lit so the photos are very grainy.

For starters:

Paalo has the Fungi di Bosco al Cartoccio - Sauteed forest mushrooms wrapped in parchment. A wonderful dish, the aromas perfectly captured by the parchment package.

I have the Antipasto platter - prosciutto, marinated olives, frittata, arancino, marinated anchovies

For mains:

I have the Galletto con Finocchio e Asparagi - Pan roasted spatchcock with fennel and asparagus.

Onto desserts:

Paalo has the Crostata di fragola e mascarpone - caramelised strawberry and mascarpone tart with red wine syrup.

and I enjoyed it so much the last time that I have the Sfogliata di Mela again - apple and cinnamon gallette with vanilla anglaise

Even with the restaurant fully booked, the service and atmosphere was much improved from our last visit.
