This was one of the easier categories to choose. My friends will attest that it stood out this year as a spectacular example of a sweet dessert gone mentally delicious. The restaurant was recommended as well, and will not disappoint, but this is the crowning jewel of the meal that is alone worth a trip to the hectic and always crowded pizzeria.
Here's what I said then (July 31 – Aug. 6) :
This is one of those desserts where everyone at the table starts moaning with joy, exclaiming, “oh my god” and,”this is amazing”. If you don't know what I am talking about, then you need to get down to Otto and order the Olive Oil Coppetta which is olive oil gelato with basil syrup and sea salt with strawberries and passion fruit granita. Even a nine dollar price tag couldn't keep me from full on ecstatic enjoyment of this delectable delicacy.
But what do you think?
