Bella Frutteto (Wexford)

Last Sunday, my bridal party congregated in Pittsburgh for a day of dress shopping.  The trip was a success, but all that shopping left us very hungry so we headed to Bella Frutteto in Wexford for dinner.  Bella Frutteto is located in a strip mall just off of the I-79 Wexford exit, at the opposite end of where Eat 'n Park is located.  It's a pretty cozy and comfortable restaurant, probably a bit more upscale than one would expect given its location.  I was intrigued by the Apple Ravioli, described as "Granny Smith apples sautéed with amaretto, golden raisins, and balsamic-roasted figs in a fresh sage butter sauce atop jumbo cheese raviolis."  I loved the tart, fruity combination and it was a refreshing way to lighten up the flavor of heavy cheese raviolis.  Very summery.  I only wish it was less greasy.

I wouldn't call the food at Bella Frutteto phenomenal, but it was pretty good and my dining companions all enjoyed their meal as well.
