Al Fresco Dining

Evening weather has been pleasantly cool here of late and that lends itself to al fresco dining.
On Friday night friends took us to Caffe Aldo Lamberti in Cherry Hill where we enjoyed a lovely open air dinner at the flagship restaurant of the Lamberti chain. Aldo Lamberti has created a plush dining environment at his namesake eatery. The service is attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere is soothing, inviting meaningful conversation and the enjoyment of outstanding faire.
Recently Caffe Aldo Lamberti opened Enoteca, Aldo Lamberti’s newly constructed indoor/outdoor bar and patio, featuring a unique glass enclosed, temperature-controlled wine room. At night the Enoteca bar takes on a romantic tone, shimmering in Caffe's soft light. We sat just beyond Enoteca and enjoyed risotto, lobster stuffed with crabmeat, sesame tuna and scallops, espresso and a dessert of tartufo.
Only one word describes it all: Bella!
