Lunch @ Enoteca Sileno

After a busy week and with another one coming, it's good to take some time out to enjoy a leisurely Sunday lunch at Enoteca Sileno.

We begin with a selection of Assaggini to share

Special of the day: Tuna three ways - sashimi, tuna bresaola and poached

The tuna bresaola had one of the more amazing textures we've experienced, it was almost pate like in the way the meat just seemed to dissolve in your mouth.

at the back are some meat filled Ascolana style olives that have been crumbed and fried.

Onto mains:

I have Saffron Gnocchi with a prawn and tomato based sauce - the gnocchi are excellent, tender but not mushy and full of potato flavour.

Paalo has the Lamb special - a generous portion of braised lamb on the bone and it is served with a mushroom risotto.

for a side we order the seared broccolini with chilli and garlic.

To drink with our meal - we've ordered a bottle of 1998 Moris Morellino di Scansano Riserva

We follow with a piece of Taleggio to see us through the end of our wine

and I decide to repeat myself and have the panettone semifreddo - I enjoyed it so much last time I just had to have it again.
