V and I went La Cucina Flegrea on Murray Avenue for a decade and then it closed. We had missed going there for the Spaghetti Arugula and Rigatoni in Vodka Sauce. J and I took a cooking class there, you might remember that post click here
Well, Chef Anna is back and she was glad to see us. Our first visit to the new place. She opened last November but it was Laura’s wedding and all. It was my friend R who told me about this new location. Here is the website for the new one, complete with menu-La Cucina Flegrea to downtown’s Market Square. We were celebrating V’s birthday. Happy birthday V!
We started with the 5 Fagioli soup and then because we ordered the Baccalá with Sweet Onion and Shrimp Sauce, a Mozzarella Wagon with Fresh Tomato sauce came as an appetizer- 4 balls of mozzarella breaded and fried and accompanied by a delicious sauce. Here’s a shot of the Asparagus with all the lovely, succulent crab meat on it.
Dessert was Baba au Ruhm. Whipped cream and raspberries, a rum sugar sauce. And a cup of hot tea.
It was a happy birthday dinner and we were glad to eat at La Cucina Flegrea again. Everything was delicious.
You took me there once. It was delicious. Glad its back.
Looks and sounds absolutely delicious!
Thank you for a lovely birthday dinner!
Now that’s my kind of restaurant! Sounds just great!
Yes, if you and your friends came to Pittsburgh it would be where I would take you to dine!
Lovely – Outstanding
Looks like a fun celebration
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Vincie! March is now Womens’ History Month – or maybe the Month of the Woman ….. anyway, YOU were the Woman of the Hour at La Cucina Flegrea!!! XOXO
Happy Birthday Vincie
What a great spot for a birthday treat!! I’ve been toying with a few asparagus recipes today… this is motivating me to whip some up!
Oh I bet you get the best crab too since you’re next to MD. I hate when a favorite restaurant closes. Glad the gang is back together.
Maryland crabbing boats are a full 5 hours drive from Pittsburgh. I know they aren’t from the Ohio River, though. HA!
But it was sweet and rich and lovely with the asparagus.
Yum! very nice 🙂
Yum – Yum – Yum … oh so delicious.
I could smell the food through my screen.
I want some. ~~~~ : – (
Well done …
