  • Amici Miei "Friends Together": Disappointing Italian Dining

    by dawnminoxford Updated Oct 28, 2007

    The old "Hugo's Inn", recently renovated and under new ownership, now goes by the name of "Amici Miei". While it is nicely decorated with an italian flare, the food was disappointing at best and left much to be desired both in portion sizes and taste. They call it authentic italian cuisine. I wondered if that was code for making everything as cheaply and meager in size as possible. To start the salads served with the meals consisted of nothing but iceburg lettuce and two cherry tomatoes. No choice of dressings other than balsamic & oil (which incidentally, goes terribly with iceburg lettuce). The crusty bread was good but so hard you could have broken a tooth and it was served only with olive oil, no butter to be seen. All four of our entree's left much to be desired. The penne pasta in cream sauce with mushrooms and ham had no flavor. The ham pieces were few and far between and so fatty my elderly aunt had to "dispose" of them in her napkin as gracefully as possible. The rosemary chicken & red potatoes consisted of a half chicken on the bone with a small pool of blood on the platter, fatty undercooked skin and a few sprigs of rosemary on the top. Oh and I can't forget the four tiny potatoe wedges (probably the equivalent of a half a spud). When we complained about the undercooked chicken on the bone, she said she would see what she could do and never once mentioned it again and no credits were on the bill. The 8 oz filet I asked to be cooked medium, was well done and chewy. Even the mouse sized portion of mini asparagus on the plate was stringy. The only good thing about the meal was the minestrone soup with lobster. It was very tasty but more of a bisque really as it was thick with no actual vegetables, beans, pasta or any of the other things that would qualify it as minestrone. The total bill came to $90. No coffee, no deserts, two appetizers and four entrees. Save your money and go to Giordano's for a better italian meal. You will spend the same or less and be satisfied when you leave.

    Sovana Bistro: Big City Quality

    by FatesWarn Updated Mar 23, 2007

    Sovana Bistro is a top-notch restaurant in an unlikely place, nestled into small shopping center in Kennett Square.
    The dishes seem to be Italian influenced, but I would call it an "Italian" restaurant.
    Not one dish was mediocre; everything was incredible.
    I started with the House-made Mozzarella Bocconcini, which was presented as a loaf of halved cherry tomatoes, avocado, sprouts, and mozzarella and topped with a creamy goat cheese. My entree was an appetizer portion of the Short-Rib Ravioli, which was served in a sauce that I believe was made with gorgonzola. My dessert was Baked Alaska, which was a special for the night. It was a single portion cake, beautifully decorated, with layers of chocolate cake and house-made cherry ice cream, centered in a pool of chocolate sauce.
    My dining companions had pizza, which was very tasty (and huge), and the Organic Chicken, which I did not get to try, but I was told it was very good. Their desserts were the Carrot Cake, which could be described as an oatmeal cookie with toffee combined with carrot cake and ice cream (including Philly Cream Cheese ice cream, which came with the carrot cake). I was fortunate to have tasted their desserts as well, and they were just as delicious as mine.
    SB is BYOB, so bring a good wine or beer!

    Favorite Dish: I would have to go for the Mozzarella Bocconcini as the best dish. It took me by surprise because I've never had anything like it. The combination of flavors in it were perfect, especially if you love avocado.

    La Michoacana: Don't be afraid the try the more exotic flavors

    by Dabs Written Nov 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fortunately I had fellow Vter and food lover Julie (travelmad478) picking our eats for the day, she led us to this little gem of an ice cream parlor in the heart of Kennett Square serving home made ice cream.

    Favorite Dish: Some of the flavors offered are a little unusual, some that sound like they would be very tasty like egg nog or rice pudding and some that made me crinkle my nose a bit like avocado, chili and corn.

    Julie's friend was the bravest of us, opting for a scoop of corn ice cream while Julie and I tried the seasonal offering of pumpkin ice cream. It was delicious and the scoop was pretty good sized unlike the corporate ice cream stores like Ben & Jerry's or Baskin Robbins.

    Don't be afraid to ask for a taste to see if you'll like it, the owners welcome taste testing. And I did try a bit of that corn ice cream and it was surprisingly sweet :-)
