It’s hard for me to enjoy a place like Savonna’s when I much prefer a restaurant that has homemade food that is much cheaper, like Mint, which is right next door. The pasta lunch special includes heaping portions of traditional foods like bolognese and lasagna, which some people just love. Dinners are expensive, but lunch is reasonable (still, around the same price of dinner at Mint). I had the Butternut Squash Ravioli and my mom had the Savonna Salad. I liked the salad (it had pears, strawberries, and chicken in it) and the ravioli was very good (it came with walnuts and warm cheese), but was literally swimming in butter. I’ve also had the Fig and Ricotta Pizza, which is definitely the best thing on the menu. Overall, the food is good, but not outstanding and there are definitely better places to eat in the Rondout, but it’s a nice place to go for a meal with the family.

Julian and I went out to dinner with his grandmother the other night, and since the La Duchesse Anne (still haven’t been there) was closed, we went here. Julian looked up the menu and was enticed by the Truffle Fries. It is located inside the Madalin Hotel, and didn’t seem promising when we walked in and saw the bar scene (Julian’s grandmother actually told them to be quiet as she is “eighty and can’t hear her lovely grandson”)-and you know that I hate noisy restaurants. We were the only ones eating at 7pm on a Thursday night. Julian had the Fried Chickpea appetizer and I had the Pulled Pork Pizza. I must say that I thought his didn’t sound good, but was actually amazing, with the combination of the crispy, crunchy outside and the soft, chewy inside. I had the messiest pizza I’ve ever had, but it was really quite good. Julian had the Veggie Burger (delicious. I had the leftovers for lunch the next day) and I had the Steak and Shrimp with Homemade Fettuccine (boring I know, but I found the whole entree menu to be uninteresting). Our dessert was really disappointing. The waitress called it a Chocolate Truffle with nuts on top, but it was more like a few tiny slabs of nut fudge. I felt like maybe she didn’t understand what the dessert was. If I were to go again I would order only appetizers (and the truffle fries). I didn’t like the entree menu much-mostly steaks, chicken, and other typical expensive American dining foods that I don’t care for much.
