9 Year Anniversary at La Contessa Ristorante

We had the most wonderfully romantic dinner last night at a new place on 780 Erie Street East that we've never been to before called  La Contessa Ristorante.

To be honest, it was not our first choice. We tried several other restaurants, but the wait times were too long. Strolling along, we saw the sign and popped our heads into La Contessa to view the menu. The restaurant looked elegant and a perfect place for us to have a quiet celebration.

As you can see, there is a lot of choices on the menu, depending on what you're in the mood for.



The staff were very attentive, prices were reasonable, and our meals were delicious! Oh and the excellent timing of water-refills was noted and very much appreciated, as Bill was quite thirsty after an earlier gig during the day! :)

We started out with a bruschetta appetizer. So flavourful!


Bill was a bit adventurous and had the Veal Saltimbocca (sauteed veal in a white wine sauce and topped with imported prosciutto and melted mozzarella cheese) which he absolutely loved!


I was a bit more conservative and had a large mixed green salad with grilled chicken and their homemade dressing.


For dessert, the moment my ears hear "we have tiramisu" that's it. Yes, I have been doing the dairy-free regime, but I splurged and had a few bites of this amazing dessert that perfectly finished off our meal.  So far this morning, I am not having any issues.



Although this was not our first choice last night, i'm happy that we dined here. It would certainly be a place that we would go back to on another special occasion and highly recommend to others.
