Porchetta - Isabella's Brick Oven Pizza and Panini

Sandwich Contents: Rosemary-spiked pork, fresh mozzarella, and tomato layered on an Italian roll and toasted.

Kate's Review: This delicate sandwich was perfectly constructed with just the right amount of every element. The rosemary added a fresh taste to the juicy pork which was complimented by thinly sliced fresh mozzarella and surprisingly ‘in-season’ tomatoes. There was just enough olive oil to bring out the flavors without soaking the crisp Italian Baguette that added the perfect crunch to the sandwich. And the slight sprinkle of parmesan just added to the excitement in my mouth . This sandwich was so simple yet delectable. One of my top favorites thus far and I can’t wait to back and try their other mouth watering creations. A definite 5 baguette status from me!
Note, make a to-go back-up plan if you go during peak hours. The 3 tables may turn quickly but there will be another taker if you don’t act fast. The staff was very welcoming and in true Italian fashion make you feel like part of the family.

Nicole's Review: Amazing. This sandwich is a winner. At first I was a bit skeptical, it didn't look like anything special. It looked like a ham and cheese sandwich on a really nice italian roll. Oh my goodness though, from the first bite to the last I was in heaven. It was fantastic. The pork was perfectly flavored with the rosemary, the mozzarella was just enough and the tomato was strangely delicious for mid-February. Oh and that bread. It was so perfect. This is defintly one of my favorite sandwiches and will certainly be enjoyed again!
