When Mr. HaveShoesWillEatandTravel was just outside of town for business, we met him halfway at Firenze Osteria for a feast!
When we saw this, we knew we had to do it. Seven courses for $75!
Little did we know that we'd be eating one of the largest meals ever! Seriously, I don't know how we did it. Firenze Osteria definitely doesn't skimp on anything. Bigger is better! I probably could've stopped eating after the third course!
Crostini di pancetta -- grilled pancetta and burrata parmesan crostino, canteloupe, aged balsamic, crispy sage, brown butter.
Gamberoni in Camicia -- pancetta-wrapped grilled jumbo shrimp filled with Gorgonzola over Parmesan polenta, garlic sauteed spinach.
Gnocchi al Coniglio -- rabbit ragu, potato dumplings.
Perfect potato pasta pillows. The rabbit made me so hoppy. Har har har.
Trofie con anatra e Finocchio -- homemade trofie pasta, duck sausage, caramelized fennel, Parmesan cheese.
I liked the gnocchi more, but this was still very good. Luscious duck sausage.
Pan-seared jumbo scallop, risotto with Tahitian squash and zucchini blossoms.
New Zealand rack of lamb, pistachio cassoulet. rosemary-sage pesto.
Cheesecake with blueberry and limoncello, panna cotta with fresh strawberries and sweet balsamic reduction, flourless chocolate cake with vanilla gelato.
Finally! Portions that aren't enormous! All three sweets were excellent.
We left extraordinarily full and with big smiles on our faces.
