Dinner at Roman Nose in Jersey City, NJ

Dan and I had New Year's Eve dinner at Roman Nose in JC. All the food was excellent and the service was great as well.  The ricotta honey crostini was particularly amazing and worth coming back for.  The pasta was also great but not quite as amazing as L'Artusi.  All in all an excellent meal.
Trio of crostini - (top to bottom) Crema di Carciofi (cream of artichoke, parmigiano, balsamic glaze), Pomodoro (tomato, basil, garlic, oregano, parmigiana, extra virgin olive oil), and Ricotta, Miele, e Noci (fresh sheep's milk ricotta, lemon olive oil, Tuscan chestnut honey, toasted walnuts, tomato and pecorino).  They were all good but the ricotta one was hands down the best.  So good we ordered a second round of it 

More ricotta crostini.  Also added Pesto - basil pesto, fresh tomato, and pecorino.  Good too but after ricotta, my second fav was Pomodoro

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio - garlic, EVOO, red pepper flakes, pecorino romano, and toasted bread crumbs.  Same dish as L'Artusi but not nearly as good.  The pasta stuck together and the bread crumbs weren't as crisp and hearty

Tagliatelle al Ragu - with bolognese meat sauce of beef, pork, and vegetables.  This was def the better dish of the two pastas.

Delicious cannoli

Mediterraneo Gelato - signature ice cream made for the restaurant by Milk Sugar Love in JC.  Has roasted, salted, butter pistachios, hazelnuts and almonds in a butter-cream base.  Sooo good since I love all these kinds of nuts
