After yet another disappointing UGA game, I headed to a late dinner with Matt, Karina, and Karina’s roommate. I am happy to proclaim Sorella is a new favorite for tapas and pasta. The wine list is supposed to also be great, but I was feeling just fine after downing several Jack and Diets at the bar during the [depressing] game, so I didn’t sample any of the vino. Oh well, just one more reason to go back. But let’s get back to the stuff I did try.
We started with a few appetizers:
- Anchovies with hazelnuts on flatbread – I know anchovies are the butt of all pizza delivery jokes, but this was quite tasty
- Meat plate – Particularly good because it included lardo
- Duck fat english muffin bread topped with chicken liver mousse, egg, and candied bacon – unbelievable and a really good portion size. Order this when you go; it’s the chef’s specialty.
We all ordered pasta for our entree. The portion size of the pasta is not equivalent to a full entree, so I would do what we did and order some apps, too. I ordered the ricotta gnudi with a sweet corn sauce. The dough was incredibly silky. It was my favorite pasta of the four with Matt’s gnocci with brown butter pears coming in at a close second.
