Pulcinella

Last night my #1 stepson, Trevor, (he tells me) treated me to this fabulous restaurant in the Kensington area in Calgary. This was once “Stromboli’s” back in the day. It is bright, cheery, modern, albeit, noisy with the chatter and laughter of a full establishment.

We ordered a (forgive my lack of Italian) deep fried risotto ball, stuffed with mozzarella, topped with a crisp basil leaf. Crispy on the outside, warm and gooey on the inside.This was one of the best things I have EVER tasted. We each had one and reserved one to bring home to our temporary invalid, Kelly.

I ordered a beautiful mushroom (plus) pizza and Trev ordered a sausage (plus) pizza. We shared slices and then packed up the balance to take home. The plus was all the other yummy things on top.

The best of the best was the vanilla gelato with a serving of warm espresso to be poured over. This was after a small glitch on the panna cotta we first ordered. The way it was handled was with no fuss, immediate removal and a new dessert was offered. No leftovers here…sorry Kelly.

Our server was on top of it all, professional and never missed a beat with all the tables he was attending to.

Recommendation: I would go back again and again. You will too!

The address is 1147 Kensington Cresc. NW.
