I have nothing but praise and more praise for Senso Ristorante!
Excellent service right from the start, our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Classy and romantic ambience perfect for a date, so why was I there with my girlfriend haha. Fresh and well executed Italian cuisine, it was a flawless meal and I enjoyed every last bite of it.
We started with the complimentary bread basket and a fava beans with eggplant caponata amuse bouche. I skipped the bread as usual but the girlfriend polished off more than her share of the focaccia. Starter of pan-seared tuna and more of that delicious eggplant caponata was thoughtfully served in two individual portions since we were sharing it (more restaurants should learn that neat little trick to win the hearts of diners).
I still look back and think of my roasted cod fondly, so plump and juicy (her comment that ”the oil will burst out in your mouth!!” makes me laugh lol), happy sighhh. Note to self: ask for less mash and more puree next time. Her seafood linguine is nice too if you are into pasta (I’m not, unless it’s ravioli/tortellini). Contrary to popular belief, girls do not like to share desserts so we each ordered a tiramisu (never say we girls can’t eat). Smart choice it was, as the tiramisu was too lovely to be shared! And we were surprised with two glasses of sweet dessert wine on the house, so dinner ended on a super sweet note!
