The kitchen is proud of our special blend of 70% chuck, 15% short rib and 15% brisket, resulting in a juicy, nicely-textured and flavorful burger!

PASTA AND MORE

Grilled with the vegetables, tumbled over polenta parmigiana and garnished with lemon oil and a drizzle of salsa verde, this is a “shrimp and grits” your mama never dreamed of.
Green Lasagne with Cheese and Tomato 15.95
A labor of love. Homemade spinach pasta comes rolling forth from the pasta machine brilliantly green and very thin.

Pappardelle with White Bolognese 11.95 | 18.95
Wide, supple pappardelle noodles are traditional with a hearty meat sauce like this, and white Bolognese is traditionally tomato-less but deep on flavor with 50/50 beef and pork, sage and olive oil, white wine, garlic, mirepoix, the traditional shot of cream, and just a smidge of nutmeg. Food like this gets us excited for Fall!

A juicy, boneless pork loin chop comes off the grill and gets a swath of herbaceous chimichurri sauce, the best thing ever to go on meat. A scoop of local tomatoes and corn goes on top of that, and steaming white rice and Cuban-style black beans pull alongside for a dinner of full-on flavor.
Grilled Swordfish Calabrese 24.95
Meaty swordfish hot off the grill is a perfect marriage of fish to fire. When garnished with a spoonful of olive oil mixed with minced capers, anchovies, garlic, parsley and Calabrian chiles, the flavors seep into the fish to create a deeply delicious dinner, Mediterranean-style.
Grilled Strip Steak with Porcini Rub 29.95
This 12 oz. beauty is rubbed with a housemade spice mix of dried porcini mushrooms, coarse salt, crushed black pepper and Spanish paprika, grilled to charred and juicy.

PIZZAS – small and large rounds
Our California-style pizzas are made with a dough that slowly proofs over several days, creating flavor and a slightly chewy, air-pocketed crust that complements our delicious toppings. Housemade sausage and other carefully sourced meats, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses made every day, fresh herbs and vegetables, sauces, condiments, herb shakes and spice mixes bring a unique character to our pizzas as they emerge, hot and tasty, from our 700-degree deck oven.
**Please note that in the Italian Pizzaioli tradition, we allow the pizzas to stay in the oven until the rims are nice and browned, with char-spots here and there. This insures a firm bottom crust that gives an assertive crunch when cut. If you prefer your pizzas baked less dark, please let us know when you order!
