Contemporary Italian | Wilmington, Delaware

My dining-out bud and I decided it had been too long since we last ate at LaFia so we went last night. My first thought upon arriving was “Why did we wait so long?!?” This is a visibly beautiful and warmly welcoming restaurant. It just feels good to be there. Service is friendly and attentive. (Doesn’t read and describe every item on the menu before asking for drink orders. Trusts if you have any questions you’ll ask.) If asked for, gladly give recommendations.. Dining bud and i started with steak tartare and octopus. I pretty much devoured the steak; he took over the octopus. For our main courses it was Seared Scallops with Saffron Rissotta - outstanding; for him, Seared Curried Cobia- in his own words YUM YUM. We split caramel pudding (wish I had my own; really too good to share) for dessert. All said, superb dining experience. LaFia is a restaurant treasure chest. More
