I often crave Italian cuisine and, as we were passing by Da Andrea, we decided to stop there for dinner. A light dinner as I like to call them: no appetizer, only entree and dessert…And the entree was superb: I went for the Tagliolini neri alle vongole, a homemade squid ink tagliolini with clams, cherry tomatoes in a garlic white wine. I loved it: the pasta was really good and the sauce delicious, so good that I dipped some focaccia bread in it…And yes, I always put cheese on my pasta, even if it has seafood in it: this seemed to have shocked the waiter who did not want to give me any cheese before, until I insisted. Jodi simply went for the Portobello con polenta e gorgonzola, a dish composed of braised portobello, polenta and gorgonzola cheese: a succulent vegetarian dish.
Dessert was a must have: their homemade tiramisu that was creamy. They also gave us some cookies with a lemon curd, a nice touch.
Da Andrea was a great find: I would definitely go back to try other dishes.
Enjoy (I did)!
