One of the things that I love when going out to eat is having a meal that is delicious from start to finish, and my dinner at Arugula Ristorante was just that. Arugula is a BYOB located in Plymouth Meeting, PA at Cold Point Village. Their menu includes Italian classics like antipasti, handmade pasta dishes like Fettucine alla Bolognese and Pollo Parmigiana. The also offer all of their pasta dishes with GF pasta and most menu items can be prepared GF as well! I will say that the space is not very big and it is ALWAYS crowded especially on the weekends so I recommend making a reservation.
Once seated every table is greeted with a few slices of bruschetta and fresh bread. Unfortunately, neither is gluten free but I was able to enjoy the tomato mixture sans bread. As my starter I ordered their salad special of the night which was a fresh beet salad, red onions, arugula, ricotta and a vinaigrette dressing. It was so fresh and delicious and perfectly dressed…not overpowering. My boyfriend ordered the arugula salad which came with pine nuts, hearts of palm, warm goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. He enjoyed his salad as well.
As my entree I decided on the bolognese with GF pasta of course. It was absolutely delicious. The pasta was cooked perfectly al dente just the way I like it and it wasn’t smothered in sauce. The sauce was extremely flavorful. Needles to say I really enjoyed my dinner. My boyfriend ordered the homemade lobster ravioli which was their pasta entree special of the night. It also came with scallops and shrimp in a creamy tomato sauce. He also thoroughly enjoyed his meal but wished there was more ravioli.
