San Carlo Osteria Piemonte Arrives in the Heart of Soho

One of the busiest nights for restaurants all over the world is Valentine’s Day, so I snagged a reservation at San Carlo in SoHo a few weeks in advance to make sure my man could have a nice Italian meal.

San Carlo honors the age-old traditions of Northern Italy's Piedmont region in a warm, rustic setting. On Valentine’s Day they only offered a prix fixe menu – one at $60 and another at $80. Usually prix fixe menus highlight the best from the chef, so it’s nice to sample a little of everything.

Between my boyfriend and I, we made sure to order different items to have some diversity. Here’s what we got:

Appetizer:

Ricotta Cake with Herbs, Butternut Squash, Shaved Guanaja Chocolate and Black Truffle

The Ricotta cake was unbelievable – one of the most incredible apps I’ve ever had. We savored every bite like it was our last!

Entrée:

Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms

The risotto was very good, but definitely could have had some more mushrooms.

Appetizer:

Blue Point Oyster, Shallots, Sherry Vinegar, Ginger & Tempura and Avocado

I am addicted to Oysters and loved how unique the toppings were on this dish.

Entrée:

Black Grouper, Artichoke Salad, Raspberry & Shallots Composte and Potatoes

The fish was pretty good and the potatoes were delicious! I usually love anything with artichokes, but this side salad lacked flavor a bit.

Dessert:

Choco Passion by the Chef

The dessert was the perfect end to a romantic Valentine’s Day meal – the chocolate covered strawberries added a nice touch and the chocolate cake tasted like a Twix!

I’ve learned over the years that most restaurants have prix fixe menus on Valentine’s Day, but I was hoping to try some things that customers could get on a daily basis. I was a bit bummed that there were no pasta options, but guess that means I have to go back soon. San Carlo Osteria Piemonte – you get an 8/10!
