Aloha (Portland), OR: Just Like My Nonna (Grandma) Used To Make ... Almost

I do not make it over this way often, but when I do, I always stop by Nonna Emilia for some of their Veal Parmigiana ($24.95 - breaded milk-fed veal cutlets baked with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese), but on this occasion I decided to try their Veal Manzo ($25.95 - milk-fed veal medallions in a rich gravy with fresh mushrooms and white wine) instead. Good chow, great decision! The veal was tender and the sauce wonderful, coming with a plethora of fresh mushrooms ... HOOAH!

My wife had Portabella Mushroom Ravioli (in a Marsala cream sauce - $18.95) although the cream in the sauce was not very evident. The ravioli were cooked perfectly  and the sauce was tasty although there could have been a little more of it because they were a little dry by the time they reached our table.
My son got the Ravioli al Formaggio ($18.95), a four cheese blend of ravioli in a parmesan cream sauce topped with a dab of marinara. He had hoped for a bit more marinara on top, but was very happy with the dish overall.
My son's lady friend ordered the Veggie Calzone ($17.95 fresh mushrooms, olives, green peppers, onions, blend of cheeses, and marinara sauce) minus the cheeses because she is vegan. However, when it arrived at the table, it had melted cheese sprinkled on top. The server caught the error right away, taking it back for the vegan version which took another 20 minutes. Our server was kind enough to remove the calzone from the bill due to the faux pas.

As usual, the massive meals come with a small antipasto, soup or salad, and garlic bread, so we all ended up taking half of our meals home with us for lunch the next day. Hey, two meals for the price of one brought the value of the $104 bill, including tip, down to just $52 ($12.50 per meal) ... KA-CHING!
