Delmonico's Italian Steakhouse

Our latest edible experience is a restaurant we are no strangers to.  Rianna has been eating at Delmonico's for over a decade and Nick is quite the enthusiast for this delicious Italian food as well! When we walked in, we were immediately greeted by the manager and taken to the bar for complimentary drinks.  After catching up, we headed to our table, stomachs ready to be filled.

The menu consists of traditional Northern Italian dishes with an emphasis on their variety of homemade pasta sauces.  The decor matches nicely with all of the Italian celebrities and sports figures you could imagine, including a particular room that prides itself on Syracuse and it's own Italian culture.

We started off the meal with a traditional antipasto salad, covered with all the essentials: provolone, salami, cappacola, black olives, anchovies, and hot peppers, just to name a few!

Between appetizers and entrees, we were greeted table-side by our favorite magian, Shaun Robinson. He prides himself in coming around to tables and amazing guests young and old.   His magical presence is noticed throughout the restaurant as there are playing cards on the ceiling in places from where he made a card "disappear" and then "reappear" like that!  It is a great way to pass the time waiting for entrees and serves as a conversation piece for the rest of your night!

For entrees, our table selected the time-honored classic pasta with marinara sauce.  On top were two jumbo meatballs.  You will not go hungry, that's for sure! Another specialty we decided on was the Delmonico Steak, and at a $19.99 price point for over a pound of well-seasoned steak, it's considered "The Best Deal In Town".  The steak also came with a side of penne with the sauce of your choice.  We are particular fans of Delmonico's vodka sauce so that was an easy choice.

Overall, the meal was filling and satisfying and did not leave much room for sampling the wide array of desserts on the menu.  But that didn't stop us!

We went for a fresh fruit zabaglione which features raspberries, strawberries and blueberries in a martini glass with a homemade zabaglione sauce drizzled on top.  Yum!  The amaretto cheesecake was also a must, super creamy with the right balance of cheese and cake topped with a layer of amaretto creme, raspberry sauce and whipped creme.

Then we really were stuffed!
