Last night we met our very dear friend at La Carciofi Pizzeria for dinner and ‘catch up’ on each other lives for the past two months. We had been here a year ago, although always wanting to return but hadn’t. Don and I were so excited to go back and it was well worth the anticipation.
Kathleen and I ordered a glass of wine to start and Don ordered a soda. We each ordered a pizza and, of course, all were different. Kathleen and I ordered our pizzas with a cream sauce and Don opted for a red sauce.
The crusts on the pizza are thin, crispy and puffy on top. Light as air and soooooo good. Mine was a mushroom pizza and I ate all but one slice. Unheard of for me. Usually I have 2, maybe 3 slices and am done. Don had artichoke, olives, mushrooms and pepperoni.
Don ate a little more than half of his and our friend, who is wiser than us, ate a few slices and took the rest back home for her lunch today.
This restaurant is small, but clean. and the service is awesome. The food is beyond your dreams. We will definitely be back and sooner than later.
It is isn’t often I will review a restaurant twice, unless it was really different from the first time. This is not the case.
After Church on Mother’s Day, we went to 2 Chefs Affair (like we do every Sunday) but whoa! I wasn’t thinking. Mother’s Day – busiest day of the year I think, and it was reservations only. We were asked if we had made one and, of course, we said no. After checking the reservation book and looking at the clock, they found us a table informing us we had about 45 minutes before they would require the table. I don’t have a problem with that. I was just thankful we didn’t get turned away.
Kieran came over and informed us of the special of the morning. It was Eggs Benedict with their special Hollandaise sauce with oven roasted asparagus drizzled with Balsamic vinegar and a side of fried potatoes. OMG! I never, ever order Eggs Benedict in a restaurant (Don makes them superbly) but…..it sounded so good that we both ordered them.
After we heard the ‘choir singing’, we absolutely devoured the plates. It was sooooo good. The balsamic drizzle made it totally. We didn’t have to worry about getting out on time. Other guests had left so it was all okay.
We thanked them again for getting us in. It would have been devastating if that hadn’t happened.
