Café Colore's Italian-American dinner menu sends gourmet gondolas of soup, pasta, seafood, veal, and more into famished belly canals. Open the floodgates of flavor to the caramelized onion bisque, a blend of vidalia onion and sherry ($6.95) that swaddles mouths in a soft warmth usually reserved for babies' blankets and Full House reruns. Lobster ravioli imports the zesty flavors of Maine's shorelines, the culinary cargo bustling with basil tomato cream sauce and ricotta ($25.95). Carnivores can sink their fangs into a veggie, sausage, and cheese-stuffed loin of pork ($26.95) or moo in a Sicilian dialect for the veal saltimbocca, topped in a sage and brandy cream sauce ($25.95). The lunch menu presents mid-day munchers with an array of pasta-based entrees, meal-sized salads, and sandwich-sized sandwiches, including the cafe deluxe, a chicken breast milanese with avocado, romaine, tomato, prosciutto, and basil-pesto mayo on house-made bread ($7.95).
Café Colore also boasts an economy-proof menu, which combines dinner with an appetizer, salad or soup, dessert, and coffee or tea ($39.95 per person). The restaurant is closed on Monday and Tuesday, and it is requested that diners not wear tank tops, flip flops, or wigs made from linguine inside the dining room.
