San Lorenzo: Trattoria Antellesi

Via Faenza 9r , Phone: 055.216990


Reviewed by: Kim and Rain from NJ, review #36

When: 2001

Great meal in 1999, but returned in 2001 wanting their Osso Buco and it was not on the menu!

This was my second visit to Antellesi. The first time, in the fall of 1999, I had a wonderful meal there with my husband. This visit did not live up to the memory but probably because I had dreamt of their Osso Buco for two years and when I returned in 2001, they no longer had it on the menu.

We started with a salad of pear and pecorino. It was okay but I should have stayed with my first choice the Crostini Toscana. Rain ordered Risotto ai Carciofe (artichoke) and I had Ribollita. My first taste of the famed soup and I must say, "Yummy!" Rain's risotto was good too. For our secondi, Rain chose Grilled Veal Chop, which she said was good. I had Vitello con Carciofe - good but not great. Guess I just had my heart set on that Osso Bucco. We also enjoyed water con gas, a 1/2 bottle of Antinori Chianti and an espresso for me.
