Haute Tasting Highlights
- Gnocco - The restaurant dish’s namesake certainly lives to it’s expectations. Mouth melting fried puffs of fresh dough with fresh slices of typical northern Italian cold cuts like prosciutto and salami. It’s a match made in heaven.
- Tagllatelle al Ragu con Piselli - Home made Tagllatelle pasta with beef veal ragu and green peas. There is just something about this pasta. The rich sauce and the refreshing contrast of al dente peas. It’s the kind of dish you just want to keep eating.
- Cantucci di Prato e Vin Santo – makes you want to cry! The slight burning of vin santo paired with the crisp almond cookie covered with the ever so delicate dusting of powered sugar, just say yes and dip, dip, dip away.
Chapman’s Chopping Block

Haute Luxury Value
- The portions sizes are hefty and perfect for sharing.
