La Creazione

I have had some outstanding meals here including one of their winemaker dinners which was an extraordinary experience. You will find an extensive collection of wines as the owners are passionate about wine and offering the best to their customers. They have one of the most beautiful private rooms in the city, your party can dine in their own private dining room and be serviced by your own waiters. The main dining room is also well presented by comfortable chairs for dining. The menu features a wide variety of Primi such as the Mozzarella Di Bufula ($14.88) buffalo mozzarella and vine ripened tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil  and Secondi such as Manzo ($37.88) grilled AAA beef tenderloin finished in a sangiovese reduction, capponata and potato gratinato   and the Scaloppine Di Vitello ($29.88)  seared grain fed veal finished in a red wine-herb emulsion, white truffle gnocchi . End the meal with some Dolci, my favourites here include the La Creazione ($11.88)- warm white chocolate cheesecake, wrapped in layers of phyllo, topped with sour cherries and the Torta D’Amore ($11.88) – warm decadent chocolate cake, smooth lava like center, topped with vanilla bean gelato. If you prefer a set menu of courses they offer four of these ranging from $55.88 to $95.88. The décor is stunning both in the lounge and in the restaurant.
