( – Poulsbo
How I heard of this place: My friend Chris introduced me to Sogno di Vino as a recommendation from his friends John & Julie on a spontaneous trip out to Poulsbo. Having never been to Poulsbo before, it warranted a sampling.
Type of cuisine: Local farms offer seasonal fare and flavors prepared with Italian-inspired flair.
Ambiance: Quaint and cozy. The outside patio is covered by a beautiful climbing tree, hanging lights and tables set up next to benches equipped with seat cushions for added comfort. The indoor space is dimly lit, with dark furnishings and romantic tables set in pairs. A large wine cellar is found towards the back, where one can purchase wine.
What I ordered: I selected the roasted pear and beet salad ($9) to start. The salad consisted of spring greens, wood roasted pears, beets, candied pecans, and blue cheese in a balsamic vinaigrette. For the main course, at the suggestion of my dining companion, we ordered the salmone affumicato wood fired pizza ($16) with smoked salmon, red onion, dill, capers, brie and mozzarella. Instead, I was presented with the salsiccia ($15) with fennel sausage, onion, mushroom and mozzarella. My dining companion ordered a Caesar salad to start ($6), prepared traditionally with Romaine lettuce, garlic croutons, Parmesan cheese and a lemony classic Caesar dressing. And for the main course, ordered the penne al pesto con pollo ($12): chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and asparagus in a light pesto cream sauce.
What I loved: Most of all, I loved the taste of fresh basil in the chicken penne dish. The pizza was well-cheesed and full of fresh fennel flavor. My dining companion preferred the pizza over the pesto pasta as it was less creamy than desired. I, on the other hand, preferred the pasta, but enjoyed both.
Why I loved it: The ambiance is the best reason to return to Signo di Vino; especially that of the outdoor patio on a warm, sunny and beautiful afternoon of leisure.
Cost: Average ($10-14 for lunch entrees)
