Caffè Italiano@Alhambra

New Restaurant@Alhambra. (4.5 stars on Yelp) Probably won't be back for a while. The Crispy Zucchini and complimentary bread were great, but that's about it. Mushroom Risotto wasn't good at all. I hope other dishes are better. Waitress seemed to be inexperienced. Good thing that I've got $10 for $20 coupon from Yelp deal. Free wi-fi was nice though. For a similar price, I would go to Celestino in Pasadena instead with greater quality and service.

Zucchine Croccanti al Prosecco e Menta Piperita

Risotto Funghi e Zafferano di Navelli
