dre @ Victoria & Richmond: We went to Osteria, where Terroni used to be located, for dinner one night with Mike's cousins. Apparently, it's owned by Terroni. They served us with bread. I think it was mini ciabatta bread - my favourite!
We had the 2-course prix fixe menu.
There were 5 appetizers in bite size form. From left to right -
Sformato di ricotta e mortadella - sformato with mortadella and goat ricotta mousse. I totally gave this one to Mike and didn't bother trying.
Zeppole di mare - Seafood and vegetable fritters. This was delicious!
Crostino Sveltino - marinated tomato and pasta filata on crostini. I tried a bite and gave the rest to Mike.
Zuppetta - soup of mixed beans and vegetables. This wasn't bad.
Polpette e carciofi - traditional meat balls in artichoke and white wine sauce. This was pretty good too.
For the main, I chose the Maccheroni della domenica - Handmade maccheroni with Ontario beef ragu in tomato sauce with pecorino. While I really enjoyed the pasta, as it was different than what I normally eat, the dish itself was incredibly bland and not that tasty.
Mike tried the Capunti salsicca e carciofi - Handmade capunti with sausage ragu and artichoke. His pasta was also very interesting and good, but his dish was also not that great.
I was disappointed with the taste of the food, as it doesn't seem to live up to its chic environment and prices.
