Onesto's

Thanks to winning a gift card from Green Dining Alliance, I got to try out Onesto's for the first time, which is in the middle of a south city neighborhood. If you didn't know it was there, you probably wouldn't ever come across it.

The restaurant looks like a small, family-owned, "Mom and Pop" type of restaurant, and it was a beautiful night for sitting on the patio. Instead of wine, I went with a refreshing "Hampton Fizz".

I thought for sure we were going to order the Lobster Mac & Cheese and a pizza, since those items stood out on their menu, but of course, the specials menu won us over.

After ordering, we immediately were presented with adorable garlic balls to start us off. I wish I had saved a couple for the end to help mop up the sauce from my entree, but they were just so delicious!

The Lobster Risotto was Patience's pick for appetizer and then we also split a Caprese Salad so we could get a few veggies in.

The seasonal Butternut Squash Ravioli called out to us and it was quite sweet. I really enjoyed the pistachios in it as well...

The pizzas we did see come out were HUGE and every one of those tables had to take them home. So be prepared for leftovers if you do order a pizza.
