I’m a huge fan of Chef Michael White and his style of cooking. At Ai Fiori, I fell in love with the Vellutata (lobster soup) — absolutely one of the most delectable soups I have ever eaten! The zucchini soup was also extremely tasty. As always, Chef White does not disappoint when it comes to homemade pastas. The Tortelli (with ricotta, mascarpone, sottocenere cheese, and a red wine glaze) was rich and cheesy. You can bet that I will be coming back for more lobster soup and pasta in the very near future!
