My husband and I went for our 1st meal at l'altro buca last night and enjoyed ourselves very much. Being huge fans of the Parkside, we were not disappointed.
We started off with a starter special of morel mushrooms stuffed with king crab. So, so delicious. We wished there were more than 2 on the plate. We were told you could order any pasta in a half order as a starter, so we opted to try the pasta special, which was venision ragu. It had such a wonderful, rich flavour. The portion was the perfect amount for a starter, especially considering it was so rich in flavour.
For our main we both had the Bistecca alla Fiorentina -Dry aged Tuscan style steak with arugula, Parmesan, crisp onions, warm vinaigrette. Let me just start off by saying the portion was HUGE. We could have shared it. The steak was tender and the 2 onion rings on the top were a treat.
For dessert we shared a flourless chocolate cake. Rich and delicious.
Overall, we enjoyed our evening very much. The service was great and the food was fantastic. We definitely look forward to going back.
