The menu includes dishes such as porchetta—a pork loin stuffed with ham, salami, provolone and romano cheeses, and garlic ($17). The chefs also craft pasta dishes such as sausage cacciatore with mushrooms and peppers ($15), and veal dishes such as saltimbocca alla romana—veal sautéed with prosciutto and then topped with mozzarella and a dry-vermouth sauce ($19).
At Chiodas Trattoria, chefs draw on generations-old recipes to craft authentic Italian dishes in a genuine trattoria atmosphere reminiscent of American cafes and French bistros. To create the chicken gorgonzola, they toss chicken medallions and potato gnocchi in a creamy gorgonzola sauce with sun-dried tomatoes. They also specialize in authentic entrees such as veal parmigiano, fettuccine alfredo, and frutti di mare—shrimp, scallops, calamari, and mussels sautéed in wine sauce and served over linguine.
