This unapologetic foodie is so elated that Restaurant Week 2014 is here & has begun in Jamaica. This year to start off RW2014, my girls & I decided to have some good authentic Italian cuisine. So we made reservations, got dressed and made our way to Caffé da Vinci located in Marketplace (Kingston, Jamaica).
I must say that it was a lovely culinary experience; we had an amazing time. The food was great and the staff was courteous. To start off the night with Antipasti (appetizers), i begun with the Aragosta alla Catalana (Lobster Salad), two of my friends had the Minestrone Soup (Shrimp & Vegetable Soup) and another friend had the Pork Meatballs. Ooops we didn't take a photo of the soup but according to my girls it was delicious albeit filled with a lot of diced vegetables.
Antipasti: Aragosta alla Catalana
Antipasti: Pork Meatballs
Now time for the main course:
Entrée: Filetto di Maiale in Salsa di Senape
Pork Tenderloin in Mustard Sauce
Entrée: Spaghetti di Mare
Entrée: Filetto di Manzo Panna e Funghi
Beef Tenderloin in Cream Sauce & Mushroom
(Look ya now! Yuh si dis beef in mushroom sauce? Dis did SHAAAAT & imma def go back for this but imma have it with some pasta!!!!! #UnapologeticFoodie)
Dessert: Dolce & Banana
Warm Banana flambé Bread Pudding served with Vanilla Ice Cream
(Three of us opted for this and it was truly delicious!!)
Twas a fab night!
Good wine selection.
Lovely decor (inside).
Clean environment both inside and outside in the Courtyard.
All in all, a great experience guaranteed.
My only complain is that they did nothing special for our birthday like other restaurants we have been to while celebrating our birthdays during restaurant week.
