Spuntino di Ottimista

The Takeaway Is This

Italian Takeout Opens in Cow Hollow

When it comes to date night, you can pair a restaurant to a mood with the greatest of ease.

But when you really want to ratchet up the intimacy, only one place will do for dinner: yours.

And we've found you the perfect sous chef: Spuntino di Ottimista, the new gourmet grocery and takeout shop opening tomorrow in Cow Hollow.

Launched by the same people who brought you Ottimista Enoteca-Café wine bar a few blocks away, the folks at Spuntino will hook you up with everything you need for a night of romance, passion and carbohydrates.

Stop here after work and sort through thirty-plus artisanal cheeses—we recommend the five-year cheddar from Quebec paired with an Argentinean Malbec (subtly pointing out your intercontinental-ness), or the Redwood Hill Farms Goat Cheese Crottin and a Napa Sauvignon Blanc (emphasizing your local roots). For the main course, we'll leave it to you to choose between the sausage and potato pizza and the hearty lasagna—both are par-baked and only need another ten minutes in the oven before the big reveal.

You can even tell her it's homemade.

Because, technically, it is.
