This is a review from Sonis Restaurant in New Castle, PA! For 18 years I grew up and lived in a small town in Western Pennsylvania. This weekend I went back there to see my 5 year old niece in the Nutcracker. (She clearly was the star of the show!) Before the show my family went out to dinner at Sonis Restaurant with her fathers’s family. My parents and sister were talking about my new blogging experience and I thought it was fitting to do a review of my dinner experience!
Food—For an appetizer my girlfriend and I ordered the stuffed banana peppers. The peppers came stuffed with pork and Italian sausage, and topped with a homemade sauce and melted mozzarella. The peppers were also served with four thick slices of garlic toast. The banana peppers were average in terms of heat, but were very flavorful. The sauce was sweet and tangy, and complimented the mildly spicy peppers very well. The garlic toast was well seasoned and very crispy, and made scooping up the sweet sauce a pleasure. Overall I was pleased with these stuffed peppers and would order them again.
For my entree I ordered the cheese stuffed ravioli. These ravioli were not made on site. They were produced by a local homemade pasta producer that does make some very high quality ravioli. Even though they were not not fresh made, they still had a great ricotta, garlic, and oregano blend. The sauce was the same as on peppers and was sweet and tangy. It went well with the pasta and ricotta. I appreciate how much cheese was stuffed into these ravioli. There is nothing I dislike more than getting a ravioli that is all pasta and very little cheese! The meatball that came with it mostly got consumed by the small 5 year old monster that was seated next to me, but from what I tasted it was seasoned well, but lacked a little interior moisture.
