Insalata di Piselli
Pesto alla Genovese
Panna Cotta al Cioccolato
It's week two of Dine Out Boston a.k.a. restaurant week and like I always say, this is the perfect time to try out a new restaurant. We headed out to Cinquecento in South End the other night for some Italian at this trendy new spot.

For dinner, they are offering a three-course menu for Dine Out Boston. Course one: insalata di piselli, zuppa du fagioli (bean soup) or bresaola e fichi (cured beer loin). I enjoyed the salad along with the bread and olive oil our waiter gave the table. We also ordered the fried baby artichokes off of the dinner menu, which were delicious. Course two: spaghetti with asparagus, Atlantic swordfish or roasted chicken. I LOVED the the spaghetti and was surprised by the huge portion they gave me. They didn't skimp on the asparagus either.   

The final course, everyone's favorite: dessert! The choices: chocolate panna cotta or lemon olive oil cake. I can't resist chocolate, so I ordered the panna cotta. It was so smooth and decadent. It's served with some amarena cherries which complemented it perfectly. By the way, all three courses were just $28!

The food, the atmosphere and the service at Cinquecento was excellent. I'm looking forward to going back to order off of their dinner menu. I noticed a bolognese on the menu, which is on my list to try. Oh yeah, they also have brunch from 10am-3pm on the weekend!

Dine Out Boston runs through March 28. Lunches range from $15-$25. Dinners range from $28-$38. More info:
