Lascari’s Italian Cusina – The Garlic Saves the Day

by Franklin on May 19, 2011

When I think of Italian cooking, I thing of pastas, pizzas, and even salads — I rarely think about sandwiches. When I found out that Lascari’s makes some good Italian sandwiches, I was excited.

We started with some bread and butter.  They also gave us this garlic mash spread.  It was really good on top of the warm bread. I particularly like mine with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  It was even better when I mixed the balsamic vinegar with the garlic spread.  It was a pleasant start.

We ordered the Baked Ziti and the Capacolla & Genoa sandwich.  In the baked ziti, I liked the rocotta and Romano cheese along with the mozzarella on top. I do like cheese as you know, and this had a lot of it.  The flavors were really nice, and I instantly felt comforted from the first bite.  It was warm and hearty, humongous too.

The sandwich, on the other hand, I was not a fan of.  It was stuffed with Capacolla and Genoa salami, very good, but it was a bit dry. It helped to dip the sandwich in their garlic spread and balsamic vinegar, but something was just missing from the sandwich.  The side of pasta salad was really good though — some of the best I have ever had.  It really was just a perfect balance of flavors.

I think I could have a good meal with just bread, a side salad, and a ton of that garlic spread. At the end of the meal, I was satisfied.  I had some warm baked ziti and a meaty sandwich saved by garlic.  I shall be on the search for an Italian sandwich that blows me away.
