Cetrella: A User’s Guide

Critically Praised | Upscale Mediterranean Cuisine | 400+ Wines | Weekend Live Music

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: mussels with white wine, harissa, and ciabatta
  • Entree: bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with vegetables
  • Dessert: panna cotta
  • Drink: a glass of Piedmont dolcetto

Where to Sit: Private parties can be arranged in three rooms that can seat 10–150 people.

When to Go: the weekend, when jazz and blues musicians invade Cetrella's bar to host a cover-free night of entertainment. Performers have included the Jean-Michel Hure Trio and Deborah Winters. Otherwise, head in for happy-hour specials at 5 p.m.–7 p.m. on Tuesday–Thursday.

While You’re Waiting: Admire the decor, including a fireplace, which Gayot describes as "cozy and romantic instead of simply stylish."

Vocab Lesson
Pappardelle _: a broad, flat noodle similar to extra-wide fettuccine. _Panna cotta: a silky, custard-like Italian dessert, made with cream, milk, sugar, and gelatin and often served with caramel, chocolate sauce, or fruit coulis.

While You’re in the Neighborhood: Order your dessert to go, pick up a bottle of sweet wine from Half Moon Bay Wine & Cheese Company (421 Main Street), and enjoy a post-meal picnic at the nearby Fernandez Park (Main Street, between Filbert Street and Spruce Street).
