Those in search of a lighter option can't go wrong with the Branzino, a grilled, wood-finished Mediterranean sea bass served with roasted fennel and capers. The slightly sweet aromatic fennel notes play well with the salty tang of the capers. Bright fresh herbs and a touch of lemon add vibrancy to the tender fish for a simple yet delectable dish.
Save room for dessert and order the Budino Caramellato, a salted caramel bread pudding nestled in chocolate sauce and topped with gelato. A balanced combination of salty and sweet, the Budino will leave everyone at your table fighting over who gets the last bite, and maybe even who gets to lick the plate.
