La Medusa Restaurant Review

: This charming Sicilian restaurant with its small dining room has a comfortable neighborhood vibe. The menu focuses on bold, earthy Italian fare featuring local organic ingredients as well as imported products. Thin-crust pizzas have creative topping combinations such as butternut squash, Gorgonzola, grilled onions and pine nuts; or chanterelles paired with pomegranate seeds and grated Parmesan. For less adventurous diners (kids are always welcome here), there's a classic pepperoni and fresh mozzarella pie. Pastas may include house-made pappardelle with braised duck leg and figs, or orecchiette with pesto and watercress. Entrées range from halibut with artichokes and fava beans to pan-roasted duck breast with baby turnips, and slow-roasted pork shoulder with tomato jam. Servers will review the daily fish dish. Finish your meal by enjoying a classic, creamy cannoli.
