Last night we met our friends for dinner at Rosso!
Rosso is a pizza and wine bar in Santa Rosa and I’ve been wanting to try it forever. Pizza and wine? Yes please.
Everything on the menu looked delicious and unique…pizza with Sonoma farm fresh eggs? Pizza with spaghetti and meatballs? Only in California. We started with a couple appetizers—asparagus and fava beans with lemon aioli:
Fava beans are gigantic peapods. What’s not to love???! In celebration of their awesomeness, we referred to last night as Fava Friday.
The calamari was just lightly fried in rice flour so it wasn’t greasy at all. This plate was right in front of me, causing a dangerous situation indeed.
Smoked chicken salad with gorganzola, candied walnuts, apples and smoked chicken with organic apple cider vinegarette came next.
And then we made room for the pizzas!!
Margherita + goat cheese and mushrooms:
Egg, proscuitto and tomato:
The crust was doughy and chewy. Need I say more?
There was also wine. A lot of wine.
After dinner, our friends told us that they thought it over and they would like to keep hanging out until midnight. The boy and I were so happy that they liked us! We have friends! They want to hang out and play board games!
We are not used to such things, clearly.
Let the games begin!
This was intense. I continued drinking wine when I really should have stopped. I guess board games just drive me to drink.
It was a nice filled with laughter, good food, good wine and great friends. What more could you ask for?
I hope y’all are enjoying your Saturday!
