This past Wednesday was our second wedding anniversary! 10-10-10!
Since the restaurant where we went on our first date is no longer there, we decided to go to our other favorite little Italian place -- Trattoria i Trulli. This place never fails. It is classic, romantic and cozy. Perfect!
i Trulli has amazing, authentic Italian food. We love their fresh tomato-garlic sauce that they serve with fresh bread as an appetizer. They have good vegetarian options for pasta too. Everything is made fresh and to-order.
Tonight I kept coming back to the beet gnocchi on their daily specials menu. Beet gnocchi? What in the world is that? I love beets, and I love gnocchi, so I had to order it. I requested the goat cheese sauce to be replaced with arrabiata sauce and it was delicious!
This picture doesn't do it justice. I know it just looks like a big blob of red. But there is the red beet gnocchi under that sauce, along with toasted walnuts and kale. I swear the chef must have known I would be coming in that night, because this meal was created specifically for me! So good!
We love you i Trulli!
