Mescolanza is a cozy Italian restaurant that has to be the best bargain in the Bay Area. A beautiful lite meal for two which I highly recommend is to start with the Polenta Al Funghi which is grilled polenta w/assorted seasonal mushrooms (my polenta phobic mom just loves it).Proceed on to the Insalata Di Cesare w/homemade croûtons and of course ask for extra anchovies! Finally share a fabulous thin crust Pizzetta Mescolanza which consists of mozzarella, Gorgonzola, prosciutto, artichoke hearts; to freaking' die for. This meal is on the light side so finish off with a cup of great coffee and the Almond Cake, you won't be disappointed.
If your in the mood for an entrée all your own, I highly recommend the Calamari Steak Meuniere or the Linguine Al Limone. And ready for this....Nothing on the menu is over $15.00! Be forewarned the parking is lousy but it's worth circling the blocks to dine at this gem.
