First on the table is different selection of bread. My pick is the focaccia accompanied by different dip: Tomato pesto, basil cream and tomato cream. Of course, the conventional dip of olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette is available as well.

Antipasto was Insalata di astice ($36), lightly smoked lobster salad, endive, citrus, miso consommé. It is like a combination between salad and soup. The lobster has a beautiful smokey flavour, followed with sweet brainy flavour when you bit into it. The miso add a slight earthly flavour to the dish which was balanced by the grapefruit. The combination of flavours really wakes up your palate. A good start to the meal.
