Finally had the chance to indulge in all of the delicious carbs & cheese that Froza Storico has to offer! Forza Storico is the little slice of Rome that opened recently in Westside Provisions beneath Red Bird. This gorgeous space overlooks the train tracks that cross through Westside Provisions, and has outdoor patio seating as well as indoor seating both in the dining room and at the bar! This casual-but-delicious restaurant concept makes anyone and everyone feel welcome, with the friendly wait staff, an approachable menu and delicious cocktails!
I started out with the Negroni Mandarino which was delicious and was served with a stamped block of ice! The Canoe Club cocktail (for all of you mezcal lovers) was also phenomenal and so photogenic!
Next up – appetizers! The Squash Blossoms and the Antipasta Platter were the perfect starters! The Squash Blossoms are filled with cheese and lightly fried—so creamy and cheesy! The Antipasta platter included everything I could’ve asked for and more (picture for evidence).
For entrees, we ordered the Papalina and the Cappelletti Spinaci. The Papalina was such a warm and comforting dish, and the prosciutto added the perfect touch! I love anything filled with cheese, so I ordered the Cappalletti Spinaci – which was topped with spinach, toasted almonds and brown butter sage!
The Affogato at Forza Storico might just be my favorite dessert of all time- vanilla gelato and decadent cream on top complimented the espresso and chocolate powder perfectly!
The service, food and atmosphere at Forza Storico will have me returning for dinner again and again! This is the perfect spot for a date night, celebration or a great place to grab some amazing cocktails from the @cocktailshaker!
