We have for a long time thoroughly enjoyed Cucina Alessa in Newport Beach. So we could hardly wait to try their new restaurant, Alessa, in Laguna Beach. The new restaurant is quite lovely, and has a great feel and ambiance, with nice indoor and patio seating. And, we are happy to report, the food is just as amazingly delicious as in the Newport Beach location.
We started off with the Salsicce Pizza as an appetizer. It has Italian sausage, sauteed mushrooms, mozzarella, and tomato sauce. A thin, crisp, light pizza with a great flavor. Really hit the spot. Sweetie Pie ordered the Chicken Marsala. Tender chicken breasts in a classic Marsala sauce, that makes it Chicken Marsala as it was meant to be- absolutely the best in town. Her mother had the angel hair pasta with garlic, basil and pomodoro sauce and a meatball side. If you like meatballs, you'll love Alessa's (try the Mamma Mia appetizer). I had the Lasagna Napoletana, with ricotta cheese, mini-meatballs, ragu, fresh mozzarella and basil. My favorite lasagna dish of all-time!
Today's Alessa lunch gets three thumbs up from the 3 Tubby Tummys!
