Solaire’s Finest Treats: Finestra

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Italian desserts can be considered as romantic and smooth and Solaire’s signature Italian restaurant, Finestra gives us an exceptional treat. Their resident Chef, Salvatore de Vicentis presented us with two of his finest creations – gelato trio of Homemade Nutella gelato with biscotti crumbs and candied walnuts, Homemade Strawberry coconut gelato with strawberry coulis and pistachio biscotti, and Homemade Mascarpone Gelato and the rich and creamy Panna Cotta.

Gelato is Italy’s version of the ice cream but theirs is finer and creamier. Finestra’s Chef Salvatore outdid himself with this winning gelato combination. The Nutella is a sure favorite of both chocolate loving kids and adults. The garnishing of biscotti crumbs and candied walnuts provided wonderful texture to the smooth and creamy gelato. This gelato sampler easily filled us to the brim especially if you have to finish all the flavor creations.



But you cannot ignore Chef Salvatore’s next dessert creation – the Vanilla Panna Cotta. I’ve tried other similar desserts but Finestra’s version was made with coffee cream and served in a delightful bowl with a slice of chocolate biscotti. This bittersweet dessert must be his masterpiece and a sure winner for coffee lovers. It is sweet and creamy with a tinge of bitterness. You truly can never say no to these Italian desserts!
