After a driving-intensive morning, my daughter Sam and I decided to stop by Amici along Tomas Morato for a well-deserved quick bite. It is , hands down, Sam’s most comforting food ever.
We had the ai quattro formaggi pizza and the spinach fusili montanara. Quite a tandem there. The pizza crust had the good compromise of ‘thin-ness’ but still filling. The types of cheeses had the best fusion and the right aportioning. No cheese overpowered another type of cheese. It just.. melted in my mouth (yes, again, with my eyes closed!).
The herbs and tomatoes subtly enhanced the whole cheese ensemble.
The pasta is a family favorite. The spinach fusili (fusili is a type of pasta that’s spiral in shape), just held so much of the flavor in its crevices from the sauce which made every bite drool-worthy. The sauce, a well-balanced combo of tomato sauce and bechamel just made this dish extra tasty. On top of these, we had the sausages for the ‘what-is-this-yummy-thing-i’m-biting?’ kick.
Of course, the gelato. Anyone?
Other must-tries there include: milanese de maiale (golden breaded pork cutlets topped with salsa verde), ragu di maiale con risotto (chunky italian style braised pork with risotto and peas), risoto di mare (plate of sauteed mixed seafood on saffron risotto).
Sam was stuffed. Amen!
