First Look: Cini Serves Molto Bene Italian Food

Cini's menu moves from right to left. You can begin on one end with some savory cini and -- with the assistance of the sharply uniformed chefs and associates -- come out on the other with an equally well-dressed piadina (a wrap, essentially), pasta or salad paired with a grilled protein and topped with options such as red pepper pesto, artichokes, arugula, feta and pancetta.

The best of both worlds -- a vibrant salad and some fried sugary treats.
Move past that initial ordering intimidation for sides such as calamari fritto miso with hot peppers ($4.95) or a bowl of Italian wedding soup ($4.45). Reward yourself at the finish line with a selection of draft beer or a glass or half carafe wine. Cini's hours are Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. See the full menu on the Cini website, and look for a second location in Ladue this spring.
