Allegra, from Latin, means welcome and good health! This place is loaded with both of those!!
We’ll start out with an appetiser, the raclett rustica. The menu decribes it as: “Creston Organic Nostrala cheese melted, over baby potatoes and Gwinner’s double smoked bacon, served with pickles and tomato”.
I must apologize… I started eating before I took a picture, I couldn’t help myself. It was deliciously greasy, but more like buttery. You know, fantastic smashed potato buttery! Not at all like a poutine which is what I thought it might be. It’s a nice and thick slice of cheese, perched on baby potato halves, with bacon/ham sprinkled in between then melted into the cracks to make it all stick together.
My choice of main course tonight will be “Fig, prosciutto ham and Mascarpone stuffed ravioli”
Looks yummy! First couple bites… creamy and rich. So good. Lots of flavor that mesh together well. A great melody of tastes!!
In the center of the ravioli mound is drizzled some balsamic vinaigrette, this adds a new dimension of taste to the already satisfying main course! After several bites, I almost wish the whole dish had balsamic vinaigrette throughout.
I’m having trouble deciding between the Chocolate chili crème Catalan or the Swiss chocolate mousse duet. Hmmm… what to enjoy…
I have chosen wisely. This mousse dessert is a splendid mix of chocolate, berries and whip cream topped with almond slices. The presentation is fantastic! under the whip cream in the center is a delicious triple berry sauce to enjoy
A great end!
