Local Eats: Gourmet Italian Cuisine

This week has been crazy.  Rob and I went to this restaurant a few days ago.  We love going here but its a little out of the way for us so we don’t go often.  It just has nice atmosphere.  Think upscale bar.  We always sit in the lounge/bar area and not the main dining room.  We also had our rehearsal dinner for our wedding here.

They give you a delicious selection of bread with an herb butter on the side.  The sour dough was my favorite!

One of my favorite things is that they have a healthy menu with calories, fat, protein, and carb content!

I decided I wanted pasta so I got the Chicken and Asparagus which comes with penne.  Delicious!!!

It was one of the higher choices on the healthy heart menu but I was happy with it!  Its definitely something I love about the restaurant.  A lot of times, I’m afraid to eat at local places because I have no idea what I’m eating.  They are very straight forward here about it which makes it especially easy for me since I track my food.  Its also nice to know that they use healthy ingredients in these choices too!

Anyway, I definitely recommend this place.  I love the bar area like I said.  You can dine in just wearing jeans and a tee and feel totally comfortable.  I just wish it was closer to my house!  Oh, and the price?  Not bad at all.  Rob’s (huge serving of) chicken parmesan was about $15 and my dish (since it is a smaller serving size) was only $10.99.  Can’t beat that!  You get the classy feel of an upscale restaurant without having to pay an arm and a leg!
