What is it that makes the place so attracting?
The chairs is the first thing I noticed as I approached the waves, they were huge and I thought to my self, a giant restaurant with giant plates! not so me, And was highly impressed with the outdoor seating the chairs and tables had this unfinished/ old look, all white, big and cozy along with the amazing view all made me eager to be wow'ed by the food.
So what I tried was:
Mushroom Soup: Not my ideal mushroom soup, not a familiar taste and was not mushroom'ie enough for my taste :) but I did notice that they used potatoes for the thickness instead of filling it up with cream. I would have preferred more mushroom to be added to it, then again it is a trial to see how they cook their food :>
garlic bread: a pizza like bread with tiny diced garlic and herbs that really captured the flavor of garlic in a fresh yet not too intence way!
garlic mushrooms: I'm not that big of a garlic fan BUT that is a must in this place! I adore mushroom and their garlic mushroom was deliciously swimming in a creamy sauce that really wow'ed me. A must
parmigiana di melanazane: Now this one fooled me! I'm not an eggplant fan, but I only tasted yummy'ness. It looked like a lasagna but it actually was "Eggplant baked with tomato sauce, mozzarella and parmesan cheese" It was edgy with a strong savory flavor from the tomato sauce & parmesan that was even down with the eggplant soft flavor. An other must!
chicken napoletana: Its a very creamy conservative starter, delicious also but a safe one to go for, not too over the edge but a good one too.
pouttanesca: A good pizza to try out on a first time, I'm not a hot chilly girl (yes the nickname does NOT relate to chilly its chillout :> the music) Back to the pizza, the only down side I had on it is the oil, its a little oily and was told that pepperoni does that to it, yet I still prefer to see my pizza plate oil-less when I lift up a piece.
penne al la contadina: That is one great dish, it is done with a pink sauce! containing the much adored by me "Pink Pepper", I don't like chilly as I said but the pink pepper is an other story, the dish was delicious except for the pasta which I was told that I can order specifically how cooked I like it to be ,,, yet it was still a yummy dish too! sun dried tomatoes never lose with me, especially that they were placed in a dish that needed them the sauce was not salty yet peppery :) and the tomatoes gave it a perfect sour mix.
pumkin ravioli: I HATE PUMPKIN, but that is one tasty dish! WHY? the ravioli is somewhat neutral it is very conservative, but its the dangerous mixture of the Pumpkin sweetness and the gorgonzola cheese that I did not have the pleasure to try before that dish :) its cheese bitterness sweetness and ravioli. Yet an other must try!
tiramisu: very light and not too sugary, I'm not a tiramisu fan and probably not the best to judge it BUT, me likey :)
caramel cheese cake: As a cheesy cheese cake lover that is hard to please, since I am a cheese lover and prefer the sweetness to come from the topping of a cheese cake, this one was nice, too caramel'eee for my taste, however it was nice.
The perfect way to dine in Il Tetto is to test & taste!, go with a crowd and try to pick things you would've never imagined your self trying! Give it a go take a bit of every dish on the table "not menu ;p", enjoy the out doors in that roof and customize when you wish, especially with the pizza. Do not go for the good old Italian restaurant orders: mushroom soup, margarita pizza, lasagna or spaghetti! gamble in this one and try to discover new tastes for you to conquer your mouth's regular flavors :D
Last but not least, a big thank you for the place owner who really cares about what people think.
