This is a gem of a brand new restaurant on the south side of Bethlehem in a very attractive property that is smart styled but not overbearing. It has a very relaxed, comfortable, and romantic setting. This should be a fine choice for those of you catching a show at the Artsquest Cafe. Parking is more than ample right next door.
The menu is unique with some Italian dishes that you may have not heard of before but are so well described you’ll only have to ask if you don’t recognize a specific Italian food term. The service we got was perfect, it’s almost cliche, but it was prompt, friendly, welcoming, and not overbearing. All of the food from appetizers to entres to desserts were delightfully prepared and were right sized. We left feeling as if we got high value for the servings but did not roll out stuffed from the venue. I guarantee that if you take your spouse and/or friends and relatives there, they will come away very pleased…and be back.
From the margerita pizza, to the arugula salad, to the Fresh Burrata Cheese and Fennel, the Fettucini alla Puttanesca Molinari, and the Pine Nut Crusted Salmon, it was all savory, with surprising taste combos, and just the right proportions, all at very reasonable prices. We had the olive oil cake for dessert and it was deliciously unique. The dark draft beer that I had was very tasty and was reasonably priced as well.
