Polpette = meatball.

Here, the polpette was served on a bed of polenta, topped with tomato sauce and gorgonzola cheese.  The meatball was light in texture, almost fluffy, in a good way, while rich in meatiness.  Paired very nicely with the polenta.  Could’ve done without the cheese.

Supposedly, Italians in Italy don’t eat meatballs with spaghetti, which is an Italian-American thing (see 8.333 Chicken Marsala).  I’m sure that at least one Italian person in Italy, at some point in history, has eaten a meatball with spaghetti.

Clams with Garlic Bread (3.0): fresh clams!

On our third visit, I can now confirm that this our favorite Italian restaurant in the Philippines.
