Upper Crust Trattoria Restaurant Review

: Upper Crust Trattoria upped its game when it added a stylish bar area and banquet room. But it’s still a local go-to for upscale pizzas combined with a casual Italian/Mediterranean menu and atmosphere. Among the perennial favorites are the raspberry salad with candied walnuts and blue cheese, the Upper Crust pesto pizza with artichoke hearts and Greek olives, and the pasta pomodoro with local sausage. Specials typically include seafood such as Florentine scampi or sea bass, served with porcini risotto, grilled asparagus and roasted red pepper cream. Desserts are typical --- tiramisu and crème brûlée --- but well executed. For beverages, there are local wines, draft beers and a full bar with a specialty cocktail list.
