Italian Kitchen

Have been wanting to try Italian Kitchen for a while and I finally found dining companions to go with. It was kind of a last minute decision to dine here and we were really lucky to get a table at the patio on a Saturday evening without making any reservation.

We started our dinner with the crispy fried calamari with tomato bordetto. The calamari was not as crispy as described on the menu. The tomato bordetto really complimented the calamari which made this dish a good starter dish for our dinner.

I ordered the Dungeness Crab Ravioli with mascarpone, lemon and pesto cream. The portion of the dungeness crab was very generous. It was my first time having ravioli and this dish did not disappoint me. I really enjoyed it till the end.

My friend ordered the chicken saltimboca ( with prosciutto, ricotta and panzanella salad ) and spicy kobe beef meatballs pasta ( with truffle cream sauce, tomato garlic confit, herb ricotta ).
The chicken was well seasoned and the panzanella salad did give a nice touch to the dish. The spicy kobe beef meatballs on the other hand was really good too. The meatballs were tender and moist, very flavorful.

Overall this was a really pleasant dinner experience. I will definitely come back to try some of their other dishes.

"first time having ravioli".

Did you mean this particular dish with ravioli or ravioli in general? If the latter, wow, that's surprising to hear. :)

This food all looks really tasty (esp. the calamari), I think your excellent photos have something to do with it.
