...That's Amore!

Saturday we had an enjoyable dinner at a La Quinta hotspot called Amore' Ristorante Italiano.

We dined with Carole and Roy from Laguna Beach, and their friends, Barbara and Gary.
The couples were in town for the Pacific Life Tennis tournament (and shopping for the girls!)

The restaurant is an a contemporary building with underlit glass entry, rounded walls of windows, a nice bar area, and a patio. We ate outside on thr terrace, and it was a pleasant 80 degrees most of the evening.

For my starter, I had a delicious crab-endive salad garnished with raspberries.

Brad's pasta carbonara was disappointing. Too much cream, little pancetta, and no eggy taste! Other starters included Carole's Heirloom tomato salad, and a couple of Caesar salads.

Entrees were varied. Check out photos of my delicious "Veal Porcini" with prosciutto and smoked mozzarella. (what diet?) Brad had Veal Picatta, and the ladies enjoyed an attractice John Dory. Love those round "slanted toward you" plates!

Wine flowed, and nobody even considered dessert! I had a delicious cappucino!
Gary looks like he enjoyed the vino!

Here are photos of the food..
