For my birthday this year, I really wanted to try a new restaurant that I haven't tried before. Not just a restaurant that I haven't tried, but also a dish or flavor that would be new to me. Although I didn't pick the birthday dinner location, my husband did a fantastic job with a lovely birthday surprise of a dinner reservation. It was such a thoughtful gesture that I am truly beyond thankful for. His choice was Prosecco Italian Restaurant, located in Rochester, NY.
Prosecco is an authentic Italian restaurant and I can assure you, Italian is never a bad idea if you ask me. I can not begin to describe how beautiful this local restaurant was. The inside was very warm with an Italian feel and had soothing music playing, making this perfect for a quiet dinner out.
The menu was very Italian. All of the most well known Italian dishes were on their menu. However, I decided to go for steak. Not because I've never tried it before but becuase I really wanted to try the chef's sauce because I am a huge fan of any sauce. Also, we had already had homemade Italian dishes 2 days that week and I was not feeling like eating pasta again. Since the dinner was a birthday celebration, I had decided it was a perfect time for steak and wine.
I ordered NY Strip Steak. This came with a side salad, baked potatoes, and asparagus. The steak was topped with a delicious wine sauce that I have never had before. The waitress spoke very highly of their wine steak sauce and since I had never had it before, I wanted to give it a taste. Also, to the steak I added Gorgonzola cheese and it was the best decision I had ever made. The cheese and the steak was a perfect combination and the chef made steak sauce made this dish absolutely perfect. The potatoes and asparagus were perfectly cooked and seasoned so I definitely rate this meal 5 out of 5.
From the atmosphere, to the friendly staff, and of course, the exceptional steak dinner, I highly recommend you try this local restaurant in Rochester, NY. Per their website, they are open for Mother's Day and this would be a great place to take the hard working and very deserving Mama's out there.
