Arlecchino, Revisited

Since our anniversary was actually mid-week, we decided to go out the weekend before for a celebratory dinner. We had two places in mind, Wild Rosemary and Arlecchino. When we couldn't get a reservation at Wild Rosemary (which we really like even though we haven't been there in over a year), we decided to have our anniversary dinner at Arlecchino, an Italian restaurant in McMurray. We went there for my birthday last November. It was just as delicious as we remembered.
Seated next to a window, looking over the menu

Of course a celebration requires wine! Italian wines with names I cannot remember nor pronounce.

Dipping oil and bread

Smoked Provolone appetizer

Sizzling, ooey, gooey cheese with arugula and truffles

Salad, with roasted beets, sunflower seeds, raisins, goat cheese aioli

Fusilli with vodka sauce. We each ate about half and took the other half home.

The chili oil, to add to pasta

Daily Special for SP: Barramundi with lobster cream sauce and sauteed spinach and jumbo lump crab. Large enough that he took a bit home for lunch the next day.

Once again for me: veal with lump crab, toasted pine nuts, arugula, mozzarella. Three large pieces of veal, so I actually got three meals from this!

For SP: Blood Orange Gelati in waffle cone - delicious. We ended up sharing this dessert since it couldn't be easily transported home and the desserts were huge.

My dessert: Raspberry Tiramisu - just as good as last time. Except for 2-3 bites, the entire portion went home with us. 
Many thanks to SP for taking me out for a delicious anniversary dinner.
