Come for the food, become part of the family
My gift to you this Valentine’s Day – a few meatball recipes from my treasured library. Enjoy!
Tony Romano, Executive Chef
Chef Anthony often treats his guests to creative entrees with varying temperatures and textures on one plate. The secret he says is to “keep the food simple, use only the best, freshest ingredients and don’t try to alter the food by doing too much to it. You need to have passion for food in order to prepare it.”
The Perfect Pizza
“We ate here about two weeks ago and every aspect of the meal was perfect. Service was outstanding. Beemster salad was great. Dressing on the med salad was out of this world. Bartender who also was our server made a beautiful dirty gin martini. Patio peach pizza will have you rethinking the pizza pie.”
