Il Risotto Review
Fresh roses adorn candlelighted tables, and prints of northern Italy and opera programs from Milan's La Scala decorate the walls, providing a romantic mood at this excellent Italian restaurant. Begin your meal with insalata del pescatore (shellfish salad), followed by lobster on a bed of pasta pomodoro or a chicken roll with spinach and ricotta cheese. For dessert, order crepes suzette with Grand Marnier or the tiramisu with decadent chocolate and cognac. You can listen to live music Thursday and Friday evenings.
