Tasty Change of Plans

Though we didn't end up having our Venetian Chicken last night (still on for tonight), we still took a gastronomical visit to Italy last night.  We decided to go out to our nephew's restaurant for a little pasta.

If you're ever in Stoney Creek, Ontario you have to stop in for their gnocchi.  Best ever.  The restaurant is called The Express, named after a train that ran throughout Italy.


We started with a shared grilled vegetable salad with a balsamic vinaigrette.  Sorry, these are phone pictures and could be better.  

Hubby had a meat ravioli with bolognese sauce that was a special order.  He's all about the meat. 

I had the rigatoni special which had mushrooms, fresh tomatoes and a
rosé sauce. Light and fresh-tasting.

No dessert because we completely filled up on the pasta and I may or may not have licked the plate.  There are no pictures to corroborate these claims.  Buon appetito.

Santino's is SO where I want to go when I visit! I'm really fascinated by the rose sauce -- was it like rose water? Could you taste the rose?

Oops, sorry. I didn't get the accent on the rose which should have been rosé. I've corrected it above. Thanks for catching it. :)
