Now that's Italian...

Dinner tonight at Tommaso's MezzoGiorno in Rocky Hill. Dont judge a restaurant by its strip mall location!* This is a restaurant for fine dining.

Bread, Olives, Cheese, Sweet Roasted Peppers and Olive Oil graced the table. Dinners were accompanied by a Salad of Mixed Greens with Cannolini Beans and dressed with a Balsamic Vinaigrette - tasty.

Vitello de la Casa was Veal Cutlet stuffed with Fontina Cheese, Sausage and Spinach with a Brown Mushroom Gravy. This came with a small but rich side dish of Penne a la Vodka.

Frutti de Mare was served over Spahgetti and the same Vodka Sauce with Lobster bits. It included Clams, Shrimp and Scallops. Very tasty.

The dessert tray was the largest I have ever seen with at least 12 choices. Ours was a Raspberry Chocolate Pie. Yummy. I tasted the dessert and had a Capuccino.

bloginfo: Tommaso's MezzoGiorno is located in the Cold Springs Plaza at 945 Cromwell Avenue in Rocky Hill, CT.

blognotes: *This room is someones fantasy of 'Viva Italia'. From the exposed high tech venting and lighting fixtures to the murals, artificial flowers and waterfalls from the modern seating to the formal blue and white table settings, this is definitely not Rocky Hill [and the menu prices were another evidence of this].
