Among the half-dozen main dishes, I chose a pasta to share, the gnocchi gamberi e funghi ($16.95). The cream sauce was rich but not cloying, the potato morsels not overcooked and the mushrooms fresh and some wild variety, not those boring brown crimini or white button mushrooms that you usually find. The shrimp, however, were disappointing; out of season you have to expect them to be frozen, but these, frozen too long, were rather dry.
The pizza we checked out was the alla Jo Jo ($13.95). Lightly red-sauced, it sported red onions and white flaked tuna with the mozzarella. Stuart liked the crust and I liked the overall combination — light on ingredients but flavorful.
Among the specials on this visit was a Nutella pizza ($8.95/$12.95), but our curiosity did not overwhelm our full tummies. Looks like there is something else tempting but untasted that will draw us here again.
