When it comes to trying new restaurants I’m pretty much a guru. I research “best restaurants” on Yelp and based on the food photography uploaded by customers, I may or may not try the restaurant at hand. With that being said, our new dining experience was definitely one for the books. Colombo’s Steakhouse and Jazz Club is nestled in the heart of Eagle Rock, CA, and offers the perfect ambiance for a “date night.”
The jazz band played smooth jazz quietly in the background, which complemented the environment and allowed my husband and I to enjoy each others conversation. Most clubs and lounges play the music so loud we have to yell at each other.
I must also add (since we’re here to talk about the food) that the menu items below offered some of the best Italian cuisine I’ve had in a long time. Scroll down for the details!
“Sam’s Recipe” (pictured above): Hand rolled pasta, lean beef, sausage, ricotta, Parmesan and melted mozzarella from Sam’s Special Dishes menu.
You can’t go wrong with any of these culinary creations. I personally plan to attempt “Sam’s Recipe” at home one of these days…
If you have family or friends who love Italian food as much as I do, check out this list of best selling Italian Cookbooks to send to a loved one! –or yourself lol. You can start your online shopping here.
Happy cooking and eating!
