Yesterday we went to an early lunch at Pizzeria Mozza for my mother in-laws 58th b-day. We started with fried squash blossoms, cauliflower fritti (so good), arancine alla bolognese, meatballs al forno (best thing I had all day) and bruschette with burrata, balsamic and roasted spring onions. We shared 3 pizza’s including an egg, bacon and yukon gold pizza, a goat cheese, leek, scallion pizza and a salame, tomato and fresno chile pizza. Crust is great on these pizzas, but they get a little watery towards the middle. Overall a great lunch. Picked a nice franciacorta off the list and brought a bottle of 2009 Giorgio Pelissero Barbera d'Alba Piani that paired well with everything.
Lobster cream Cappuccino with truffle shavings

Seared Quebec Foie gras, root vegetable puree, Buna-shimefi and chips, Morel mushroom emulsion, veal jus flavored with arabic-arpegio coffee
(2002 Bouchard Pere & Fils Marconnets, Beaune )

Slowly braised veal cheeks, citrus flavored suce, fondant potatoes and parsnip puree with a pamesan chees emulsion
(1999 Guado al Tasso) (a stunning food pairing! Cool)

A selection of 3 indivual desserts served in shot glasses (chocolate, coffee, berries)
(1994 Smith Woodhouse VP)

Had a delicious lunch yesterday. Marinated australian rack of lamb (marinade was basil infused olive oil, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, garlic and a touch of herbes de provence); grilled to medium rare and cut in "double chop portions". Side of roasted garlic and slightly minted couscous.

The one in Newport? What did you think?
Yes. Seems to have a good variety of specialty pizza. Hard to make a final determination from one lunch though.

Had the all meat pizza with bacon, finnochiona, fennel sausage, guanciale, tomato & mozzarella. Toppings were ample and of very good quality. The crust was super thin (so thin that it was almost non-existent in the center. Knife and fork action.

Good overall, but not drop dead wow. I want to go back and try the Friday lamb shanks special.

Agree on the crust. I love the outer crust, but it is so thin in the middle that it can get watery.

I'm often available for lunch, though it is a helluva drive for me to get there without much notice.
