For foodies who have yet to discover Ala Romana, there is no time like the present! The Nob Hill Italian eatery recently unveiled its fall menu at a private media dinner on October 20, which we delighted in attending.
Owner Lorenzo Logoreci opened Ala Romana in fall 2013 as a contemporary counterpart to his acclaimed traditional Roman restaurant, Allegro Romano. Ala’s modern Italian fare has become a fast favorite of San Francisco and the restaurant’s local Nob Hill neighborhood.
All of that said, we had the chance to try it for ourselves and walked away with 5 delicious reasons to return to Ala Romana for their fall menu.
1. New fall dishes like kabocha squash soup, garganelli with pumpkin sauce, prosciutto and
pomegranate, and beet salad take classic autumn flavors in bold, reinvigorating directions.
2. Ala Romana’s staff is a warm and friendly, and provide service to the nines.
3. Pasta is housemade. Need we say more?
4. Fresh tagliatelle, pappardelle, and fettucini is available to purchase and take home. And believe us when we say that the take-home pasta is worth every bite.
5. Happy Hour is every Tuesday to Saturday, 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM, featuring house wines, beer, $1 oysters, and $6 ceviche, among many other offerings.
