I had the opportunity to stop by Portelli Rossi in Novato for lunch the other day. It is quite expanded having an outside patio with heaters, plus the charming inside. The staff were all quite pleasant and welcoming.
I started with a fabulous Caesar Salad. It had a nice citrus note and the dressing was rather light, just as I prefer. The romaine lettuce was harvested perfectly, not bitter as some are and it was cut nicely to its best advantage.
I ordered a half order of the Linguine with Clams. I normally prefer a garlic and white wine sauce, but I have to say Portelli Rossi's rendition with fresh tomatoes and basil really was wonderful. My lunch experience here was nothing but positive and I hope to visit again!
