5th dish:

Affogato

My take:

I loved the Gnocchi ala Romana, such a unique dish and one that I haven’t seen or tried before. The Paglia e Fieno using their inhouse handmade tagliatelle was unique and colorful. The pizza that I tried was their Whole Wheat variation which is only available on Fridays, the pizza dough is more dense than the usual, with good flavour balancing out the toppings! For a sweet finish, I loved the Orange Crostata from the crust to the pastry, along with the vanilla ice cream on the side with its swirled orange rind covering! The Affogato is a personal favourite which I have enjoyed here in the past.
