  • Braised pork belly glazed with a blood orange-vanilla beurre blanc, with sautéed Brussels sprouts and pancetta followed by a‚ blood orange-vanilla cello
  • Traditional cannoli served with a‚ pistachio créme cello
  • Amaretto-coffee ice cream served with an over-sized biscotti and‚ mocha cello
