Where there is no wine, there is no love" - - EuriphidWhat's Italian food without the wine? Cucina Alessa without company and conversation? Came here for a monthly dinner out with friends. Hubby ordered the Conchigle Gamberi E Asparagi which was seashell pasta with shrimp and asparagus tossed in lobster cream sauce. I started off with just a side salad. Garden greens with pepper. For my entree, I had ordered off the Chef's menu and hooked myself a Lobster ravioli. A creamy ravioli stuffed with lobster and smothered with lobster cream sauce. I had paired my dish with a couple glasses of the Zenato Ripassa wine, which is a velvety deep red which is just smooth down the palate. I was also fortunate to try the buttery nut squash ravioli too. Mmm, heaven sent as well. A vegetarian dish that is just as creamy as can be. From the appetizers, entrees, desserts and wine I cannot complain. Cucina Alessa is a definite do-over!With true Italian chefs, a hostess from Italy, good wine, great food and even better company, my time at Cucina Alessa was worth every penny. A true little Italian gem right here in Orange County. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~
