My review

My husband and I went to Sestina, and the food was amazing! It’s not inexpensive, but it wowed us. Highly recommended. I’m starting with dessert because the flan was the best I’ve ever had (vegan or non-vegan). It had a blueberry compote and toasted almond slivers on top, and each bite was a revelation.The only thing that wasn’t incredible was the chocolate/hazelnut budino dessert (even though I love chocolate and hazelnut together). The issue was the drizzled caramel was over-salted, and that detracted from the rest of the taste.Everything else amazed us both. Try the Tagliatelle if you like truffles. The sauce had a fantastic roll on the tongue with lemon and a hint of thyme. The pasta was tender and beautifully thin, and the parm only added to the taste. The ravioli with a thyme alfredo sauce and sweet corn was fab. The pasta was tender and the sauce complemented it perfectly.The arancini was a terrific appetizer. The sauce again didn’t overpower, but I would have liked a cheesier taste in the balls themselves. On the other hand, the Caprese was scrumptious. We’re still wondering exactly how they got the mozzarella to taste so like actual mozzarella. And the balsamic glaze was subtle and again a perfect complement to the rest of the tastes.I can’t wait to go back. Highly recommended!
