Sette Luna

Tomorrow is our anniversary (2 years! Can you believe it?!) but I'm working late tomorrow night so we went out tonight. We went to a little restaurant called Sette Luna in the "good" part of our town. It's been highly recommended to us before so we were excited.

It's definitely yummy! To start, I got calamari fra diavolo (calamari in spicy tomato sauce) to start, but was a little surprised that they weren't fried like usual. It was kind of like eating tortellini, actually. Eh. Gibby had wood-fired baby artichokes in olive oil and white wine. That was very hard to eat but very yummy. I think there is no classy way to eat an artichoke.

For main dishes, Gibby got a NY Strip Steak with blue cheese - big chunks of a delicious blue cheese. Yum! I got grilled jumbo shrimp over vegetable risotto. The shrimp were delicious but it was not very exciting.

Dessert was the shining point of the meal: white chocolate panna cotta with strawberries and crumbled amaretti cookies. It was kind of like a creme brulee without the brulee. Just the creamy custardy yum-yum. We split that and immediately wished we'd ordered more. SO good.

We're looking forward to coming back on a night when it isn't pouring so we can sit outside!
