mushroom soup makes a better leftover than a dressed salad, I
always opt for it when ordering an appetizer.

For my main course, I tried the Ravioli Contadina,
something so new to the menu that at the time of this writing
it is not even listed on its website's menu. The mouth-watering
dish boasted large, premise-made, mushroom-stuffed ravioli
that were sauced with a thin tomato gravy. Fresh mushrooms,
eggplant, zucchini, peas, and red peppers dotted the dish. It
is a dream of a vegetarian entrée as the white wine-based
tomato sauce was lighter than I expected, making it a great
accompaniment to the heaviness of the cheese and bread
starter. There were too many raviolis for me to finish, and I
took half the serving home. Typically, I end up throwing out
my untouched doggie bags days later, but this dish was too
enjoyable to ignore. To my delight, it was just as good, if not
more so, the next day as flavors of the dish melded overnight.

My friend ordered the Tagliatelle Bosciola. To the
uninitiated, it's a simple pasta dish of mushrooms, sausage,
and garlic, topped with a healthy dusting of grated Reggiano
Parmigiana. But to someone who fondly remembers Nonna's
kitchen table covered with freshly made pasta spread out to dry
for Sunday supper, it was like going back in time. The noodles
were indeed served al dente, just like my Nonna's, and the
mushrooms tasted like they had just been harvested.
Frankly, I've not had a bite of food at Salute that didn't
remind me of the comfort of my Nonna's house. Its Pasta

Carbonara just might be what I would request for my last meal.
When it's not on the menu, I'll happily enjoy its Fettuccini
Alfredo with peas and ham if I'm in the mood to indulge and not
worry about the bulge. On the nights when I'm avoiding carbs,
I'll often opt for the Spaghetti Squash Diavolo. The veal and
chicken dishes never disappoint, and until that fresh mozzarella
came into my life, the filo-wrapped shrimp with saffron aioli was
my preferred appetizer.

Salute's wine list is also worthy of a mention. It has some
wonderful wines by the glass if you're not up for ordering a bottle.
I suggest you try the Sean Minor Cabernet Sauvignon if you
want just one glass of red but can't decide what to order; it pairs
very well with most of its hearty pasta dishes. Be sure to ask if
the bottle has been recently opened and if it hasn't, ask what was
just opened as that is an indicator of both the freshness and the
popularity of the wine on offer.
Our night ended with a plate of the cinnamon spiced mini
cannoli and a glass of grappa. Most nights we are too full by the
time the dessert tray makes an appearance, but on this night, we
ordered the small dessert to extend our night out. I think we
were too full to really enjoy them. After savoring my leftovers the
next day, I was wishing I'd brought home an extra cannoli as well.
