I know we have been away for far too long. Our recent trip to Chicago to visit some great friends inspired us to catch up on all the food adventures we’ve encountered.
Nestled in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, Moscatos Bella Cucina first came to our attention when we went for brunch and fell in love with their crepes. This time around we went for dinner and brought some of our friends.
We arrived with a fairly large party so we got to sit in the special lounge area in the back. The atmosphere is both eclectic and classy and they had a live band playing.
We love how they make their own bread and pasta. The brushetta and calamari were amazing. The calamari sauce really surprised us with its rich and herby flavor.
We shared the Chicken Saltimbocca & Pasta between the two of us. Thought it was a great combination and overall great dish. Again, their sauce was very flavorful with just the right about of herbs.
Here are some dishes our friends ordered:
Vegetarian cheese lasagna
Vegetarian homemade angel hair with fresh mozzarella, zucchini, squash, and spinach
Italian Club sandwich
Now for the drum roll…The desserts! The crepes are fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. The cannoli cream topped off the night for all of us.
