Italian Lunch At Caruso Ristorante Italiano(Cafe Caruso)

Pasta Trittico: Ravioli, Taglionini & Spaghetti

I was invited to have a full-course Italian Menu Lunch at Caruso Ristorante Italiano (Cafe Caruso) almost two weeks ago and I’m glad I did.   The location is out-of-the-way so its a place you have to visit intentionally but I guarantee that the visit is worth while.

The Italiano menu we had composed of  Antipasti, Pasta Trittico, Secondo , Controno and Dolce with a choice of a white wine (Trebbiano d’ Abruzzo) or red wine (Sangioves).

My favorite of all was one of the pasta served in the Pasta Trittico (triple pasta plate) the Tagliolini portofino al salmone or the home made pasta with salmon cavial and tomato sauce. It’s very different from the usual pasta I have ever tried from any Italian or so-called Italian restaurants I’ve tried, even the popular ones could not compare.

The Pasta Trittico includes a Ravioloni elimiani ripieni, al burro e salvia or Homemade ravioloni with spinach, ricotta cheese butter and sausage; the Tagliolini and the Spaghetti Amatrician or Spaghetti with bacon, tomato sauce and percorino cheese.

The Antipasti (or the appetizer) is already filling as it composed of a Procciutto di parma or parma ham; Rotolino di funghi porcini or Rolled crepe stuffed with porcini mushroom and a Mozzarella di bufala alla caprese or Fresh mozzarella in Caprese style.

After the appetizer the pasta was served then the Secondo we were asked to choose between a Scallopine di vitello al limone or Veal slices in lemon sauce ; or Lapu-lapu alla favignana or Grilled Lapu-lapu fillet with capers and olives. I had the later and I hardly finished it because the earlier course were filling already. But don’t get me wrong it taste really good! A crowd favorite actually.

It was served with roasted potato or Patate Arrosto and Mixed Vegetables or Verdure.

Desserts was the classic Italian Desserts no less than a scrumptious Tiramisu and Vanilla alla Mode.

We were also served with Wine, a choice of Red Wine (Sangiovese) or White Wine (Trebbiano d’ Abruzzo).

I would visit the place again and have a solo serving of the Tagliolini one of their specialties. It’s super delicious! I also love the ambiance, there was a string quartet playing classic Itallian songs. It’s a nice place to have a date too.
