Last night was our 4th anniversary. We ran away from our kids and had a wonderful dinner at Tattoria il Centro and browsed around downtown at the Arts Festival. The weather cooperated and we had a great time.
I fell in love with this restaurant.
It wasn’t what you would call a quiet romantic place. When we walked in we were greeted by the sounds of a little italian man playin one of these.
Does anyone know what this is? I don’t think it’s a typical accordian.
Our waiter served us hot focaccia bread out of a basket he carried around. Instead of butter or olive oil, it came with this delicious cannelloni roasted red pepper spread.
For starters, we ordered this. Portabello frittes (fries).
Oh mercy, this was fabulous. I could order a double of these as my main course. Panko crusted Portobello strips with garlic aioli and white truffle oil. Mmmmmm.
This is what I ordered.
Gnocchi with braised artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, pancetta in this amazing sauce. On top was a dollop of marscapone cheese whipped with black garlic. I didn’t think anyone in Oklahoma knew what black garlic was.
This is Mr. Wonderful torn over what to get off the rather complicated menu.
This is what Mr. Wonderful ordered. He’s such a man….
Okay I’ll grant him this…at least it’s margherita pizza! It looked pretty good too.
We had a wonderful time together later walking and browsing through our downtown local Arts Festival.
