Acappella Restaurant Review

: In the dim and sumptuous setting, under the 16-foot ceiling and surrounded by walls decked in tapestries and paintings, Acapella sings a siren song of chic décor and super service. The courteous staff sets out an array of pre-appetizers like the fresh Malpeque oysters on the half-shell, baked with white wine, a touch of fresh spinach, and topped with two cheeses. Next could be the fresh handmade fettuccine with porcinis, fresh artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes and white wine. Portions are sufficient to sate any appetite. The real meal begins with entrées such as veal chop cappricciosa, a thinly-pounded chop prepared in extra, extra virgin olive oil and topped off with fresh arugula, tomatoes and Bermuda onions. The experience will leave you singing.
