per caffe bianco

We visited Per Caffe Bianco the other night for dinner.

It was our first time there for dinner and there weren't many people, since it was a weeknight.

We ordered 1 dinner set 2480 yen (about US$24.80), this comes with an appetizer, choice of pasta or pizza, dessert and a drink.

We chose the assorted appetizers, fresh tomato pizza, sfogliatelle and cappuccino.

We also got an eggplant pasta 1150 yen (about US$11.50), a glass of spumante 600 yen (about US$6), a glass of beer 550 yen (about US$5.50) and a cup of coffee 400 yen (about US$4).

The assorted appetizers had a poached fig wrapped with proscuitto, some manila clams and caponata.

The pizza dough was chewy, with lots of tomatoes, some basil and some mozzarella, simple and delicious.

The pasta had 2 huge slices of eggplant, another simple yet delicious dish.

Dessert was delicious too. Served warm with almond paste with bits of candied orange as the filling and layers upon layers of puff pastry.

There was also a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some honey drizzled on the whole thing.

It went nicely with my cappuccino and Satoshi's coffee. It was a great night out.

Sounded like the perfect meal, but it's that cappucino design that made me smile. Too cute!
