SHWEET!: Chocolate Tartufo at Il Posto
By Steve Jansen
Il Posto – the Sunnyslope-located Italian restaurant that used to be called Our Gang Cafe – got it right.
What does “it” refer to? Well, first of the all, the ambiance, from the sharp looking inside dining area to the New York City-esque patio complete with misters. Another aspect was the dinner menu, which features good-sized portions of hot pastas, chicken dishes, salads, and more.
And then there is, of course, the dessert. I had a hard time choosing from all of the awesome sounding options, but I went with the Chocolate Tartufo, four balls of chocolate ice cream topped with almonds, chocolate chips, whipped cream, and sprinkled with chocolate syrup.
Since my dining partner and I dined outside on the patio, we had to eat fast before the ice cream melted.
But you’ll never hear me complain about needing to eat a dessert too quickly.
