I recently visited Terra Rustica Due, located in Mount Kisco, New York. This is a new Italian Restaurant with the same owners as Terra Rustica, located in Briarcliff Manor. Although I have never been to the Briarcliff Manor location, I thoroughly enjoyed Terra Rustica Due. This is a fantastic new restaurant for Italian-food-lovers to try! Upon walking in the restaurant, I noticed the classic molding with curved settees and hand painted tables, not to mention a dark wooded bar.
As a seafood fan, I was pleased with the multitude of fresh seafood dishes available on the menu, from Tilapia Con Puree Di Broccoli to Seafood Pasta. I was told by the manager that all the seafood served is “extremely fresh”. If seafood isn’t your favorite, there are plenty of other dishes available on the menu. Terra Rustica Due prides themselves with their homemade pasta. There is a variety of pasta dishes available on the menu to try! In addition there were several innovative salad dishes on the menu, each with a unique assortment. The Insalata Di Crescione was served beautifully in a parmesan cheese basket.
For our meal we began with a family size dish of Rollatini Di Melezane. This eggplant rollatini was baked in the restaurants pizza oven, allowing for a heavenly taste.
As another appetizer we ordered two salads, Insalata Di Crescione and Insalata Di Frissee. The Insalata Di Crescione was gorgeously presented in a parmesan cheese basket with watercress, roasted walnuts, corn, pears and gorgonzola inside the basket. The Insalata Di Frissee was a scrumptious salad accompanied with apples, roasted pecans, goat cheese and cherry vinaigrette dressing. This is a fresh light tasting salad, perfect for the summer months. My husband had Lobster Ravioli in a pink cream sauce for the entrée.
I enjoyed the Zuppa Di Pesce, this beautifully presented entrée consisted of clams, mussels, calamari, scallops, and shrimp in a light marinara sauce. My daughter ordered the Petto Di Pollo Con Scamorza. This chicken dish is comprised of diced zucchini, portabella mushrooms and topped with fontina cheese, in a white wine roasted chicken sauce, served with mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes. As a side we enjoyed Penna Alla Sisina. This wonderful penne pasta was accompanied with fresh tomato sauce with diced eggplant and fresh mozzarella cheese.
Although we were quite full, we could not miss out on dessert! To complete our dinner, we had flan, a nice way to finish a great meal.
