It’s been a minute since we last dined out, but we had the pleasure of revisiting RPM Italian with our dear friend DCfoodporn a few weeks back. This was our second time there, and both the food and service were great, as per usual. We’ve been extra careful due to COVID so we went during an off hour and sat outside on their patio.
We started our meal off with an order of their Imported Burrata ($19), and it came with sunkissed tomato, olive and ciabatta toast. It was delicious but note, you can actually get their 600-day aged prosciutto for the same amount of moolah, so that may be the move. What do you guys think?
In terms of entrees, we absolutely loved their Pappardelle Bolognese ($21). Their house-made noodles were cooked beautifully, and the short rib ragu was hearty and delicious. This was actually our second time enjoying this dish, and we liked it just as much as we did the first time ’round.
Justin always gets their Lobster Fra Diavolo ($48), but with gluten-free noodles. We haven’t tried this dish yet – we’re always too busy eating our pappardelle – but it looks scrumptious. It comes with huge chunks of lobster along with cherry tomatoes and pepperoncini. Not feeling either of the aforementioned entrees? Other delicious options include their Crispy Brussels Sprouts ($11), Carbonara ($18), and their Spicy King Crab Spaghetti ($26).
If you’re not totally carbed out at this point, we recommend ending your meal on a sweet note with their Bomboloni. They make these fresh to order so you get to enjoy ’em while they’re pipin’ hot, AND they come with nutella, which is a serious do in our book. We also hear great things about their dark chocolate gelato and their Bill’s Chocolate Torta so go wild.
