La Madia Restaurant Review

: The soaring, enclosed glass wine cellar is the highlight of La Madia’s interior. More than 75 varietal selections from the likes of California, Washington, Chile, France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Spain are housed for guests to order by the four-, six- or seven-ounce glass, or, alternatively, the bottle. An affordable and filling meal can be had with one of the pizzas, made to order in the wood-fired oven; we’re partial to the grape and Tallegio version with prosciutto, an inventive sweet-savory blend. Gluten-free crust is available. But pizza isn’t the only thing that gets a makeover; there are unusual pasta and entrée combinations as well. Meatballs are made of foie gras, and roasted half chicken is accompanied by unexpected flavors in the form of pumpkin and Tahitian vanilla oil. For dessert, try the chocolate polenta cake (gluten-free). Arriving in a cast-iron skillet, it is doused in confectioner’s sugar and features a molten lava center.
