Best Italian dishes in TC
Posted on 06 / 15 / 2011
I hadn't eaten here for about a year b/c last time I went the vegetarian options were too limited. They now have more veggie offerings. You can still get the hummus & pita chips and their pasta dishes like Creamy Pesto with pine nuts, a straight forward Marinara and a Primavera. They also now have tofu lettuce wraps, a caprese tart, sweet potato chips with guacamole, soups and a great selection of salads including a Greek Quinoa salad that's worthy of mention. Vegetarian entrees include a Sundried Tomato Polenta Stack, Mediterranean Cous Cous Stuffed Squash, Coconut Curried Tofu, a Spicy Lentil and Vegetable Burrito. As a vegan you'll still have to make some special requests.
Though this place is not strictly Italian, it's the best veg-friendly Italian place in TC. It beats the heck out of Trattoria Stella which I will not set foot into b/c they serve foie gras (tortured duck liver), lamb and blood sausage. You've been warned. Go to Poppycock's instead.
