Italian food is one of my absolute favorite cuisines, and it’s even more enjoyable when shared with a large group of people. I found Crispo with its rustic feel, exposed brick, and hearty food to be wonderfully comforting.DSC_4290DSC_4293

We started off with a side of Truffle Fries ($9.95) that were quite satisfying, especially with the shaved parmigiano that added a creamy texture with some bite. We nibbled on the fries as our Roast Bone Marrow “Oreganato” ($17.95) was prepared. The bone marrow was such a highlight of the meal, with a crispy breaded layer on top and wonderfully rich marrow to pair with bread and caramelized onions with raisins. I thought the portion size was really quite generous as well.  Our entrées were all very generously sized as well, and each was delightful in its own right.

DSC_4298Trofie al Prosciutto ($22.95): The truffle flavor in this was so, so rich and I loved it. I loved the trofie pasta too and the peas and prosciutto flavors also paired really well together.

DSC_4301Spaghetti Carbonara 3P’s ($21.95): This classic dish was served with the most perfect runny yolk. And it was quite aesthetically pleasing.

DSC_4303Bucatini Amatriciana ($21.95): Bucatini is like spaghetti, but hollow on the inside. The sauce was so rich and flavorful.

DSC_4304Spinach, Short Rib Ravioli ($22.95): The ravioli tasted so fresh, but what really shone through was the red wine flavor in the sauce.

DSC_4305Truffled Mushroom Crusted Salmon ($25.95): This was amazing. The salmon was so tender and the crispy crust paired so well.

My meal at Crispo was so filling and satisfying, I’ll definitely be back to try more.
