Mama Lou's Italian Kitchen

Hubby and I have been meaning to try this Italian restaurant for the longest time ever since his mom gave rave reviews about it. And we finally did by having our date there last Valentine's Day! ;p

Mama Lou's Italian Kitchen is a casual dining restaurant that serves authentic Italian dishes. The place itself is actually the old family home of the owners, so it really has that cozy, intimate, relaxed vibe. 

It was really hard to order with so many appetizing choices, but this is what we finally ended up getting (you can check out their full menu HERE):

their free bread with two types of sauces, tomato & pesto
Pizza Bianca
cream, mozzarella, mushroom, bacon
P275 (12") / P375 (14")
the pizza came with a side of alfalfa sprouts
Marbled Rib Eye Steak
exceptional tenderness imported from Australia
Risotto Tartufo Funghi
wild mushroom and truffle cream

Everything was delicious! The pizza was thin, crispy and very flavorful. The steak was cooked just right and went really well with the risotto, which I absolutely loved!

My only complain if any would be that the dishes were served one at a time with quite a bit of waiting in between. We had already finished the pizza before the steak came, and then it was another couple of minutes before the risotto finally arrived (probably because it really takes a long time to prepare). But other than that, it was a great dining experience. The owner even personally came to our table to ask us how the meal was and to greet us a Happy Valentine's Day. :)

I'm still dreaming about that risotto and can't wait to be back to try the other dishes. This is definitely a new favorite date place of ours. :)
