Pellegrini Italian Market

We don’t go to West Seattle often, and every time we went there, we were awed by the amount of on-going constructions: the addition of new big Trader Joe’s, and more mix-use buildings.

On-going development is truly happening everywhere in Greater Seattle.

On the main street of California Ave., one will find this relatively new establishment Pellegrini Italian Market, opened by the family who owns La Rustica in West Seattle.

Casual-dining, order at the counter, with small grocery area and part bakery, Pellegrini Italian Market has a nice and open airy feeling.

They serve a full sandwich menu, consists of paninis, subs and pizza sandwiches, plus pizzas by the inch, salads and other appetizers.

The day we were there, they also offered breakfast sandwiches.

I was most interested in Suppli, a fried risotto ball, crispy outside, with cheese and peas inside, very creamy and hearty.

from L to R: pizza, suppli and truffled porcini bruschetta

Another good-looking appetizer was the truffle porcini bruschetta.

Bread at the bottom was crunchy with soft inert; great truffle flavor, and there was just enough cheese to be smooth, topped with delicious porcini mushrooms.

Zi Gino pizza sandwich was tasty, with prosciutto, arugula and tasty balsamic vinegar inside, salty and sweet together; except the crust was a little too thick.

The salad on the side had this very addictive garlic flavor, really good.

Pizza was ok, again, with thick crust.

The bakery side offered an array of desserts.

We shared the anise Pizelle, which had good flavor; the cake in the tiramisu was a little dry, but with lovely chocolate and coffee flavor.

Personally, I was attracted to the Zucotto, with chocolate mousse, black cherry and amaretto, all my personal favorite flavors in one.

Unfortunately, it was sold in a whole cake, so I have to return for it!
