More About

I doubt I'll surprise anyone by saying that desserts at Incanto are simple and well executed. Choices include one of the most ubiquitous sweets in town -- the flourless chocolate torte. If you're going to offer such familiar items, you'd best do it well, and Incanto does. Dark, dense, and rich with cacao, the torte was finished with a dollop of whipped cream and a tart, fresh-tasting strawberry sauce. Olive oil cake isn't quite so common, but once you've tried this version -- a moist, luscious wedge of pastry served with a custardy zabaglione and plump raspberries -- you may wish it was. Like so many other dishes here, the cake achieved its full potential. All Pastore and company have to do is keep this up and they'll be charming diners for many moons.
