Ristorante al Cristo: Verona, Italy
It was our last night in Verona and we couldn’t resist returning to one of our new favorite restaurants, Cristo.
This time we started with the wild Sicilian red tuna tartare and the scallops and tomato with panzanella. Both were incredibly fresh and flavorful dishes. Next, we devoured the grilled Sicilian tuna, which was complimented perfectly with black rice. The linguine with blue lobster was unbelievable. I couldn’t believe how palate pleasing this dish was, so I asked the waitress what exactly was used to prepare the heavenly dish – olive oil and crushed tomatoes. Naturally, I purchased a bottle in hopes that CD can attempt to recreate this magnificent dish back home.
Our meal was just so incredible that we didn’t want it to end, so we ordered the cheese plate! It was a great assortment of formaggi accompanied by kiwi covered in a glaze consisting of the perfect consistency of sweet and spicy flavor that would have been equally as incredible on sashimi.
We look forward to our next visit to Verona and our next meal at Cristo.
