Paesan Kitchen and Bar is a great spot to start and end the day. The early risers can snag espresso on the go to fuel the day while the night owls may sip microbrews and nifty cocktails when the lights dim. And while best known for serving up Neapolitan-style pizza pies with compelling toppings such as salmon belly, pancetta and pear, Paesan Kitchen and Bar is no one-trick pony.

That said, I am clearly on a lamb bender having featured the lamb burger from Iron Rabbit only two weeks prior, but man oh man I just can't get enough of it. Upon my last visit to Paesan - and many visits previously - I begin my meal by riding the lamb meatball and semolina gnocchi ($13).

An equal part of tender lamb meatball and gnocchi, the dish is smothered in a flavorful pomodoro sauce. What really unites these flavors and highlights their full glory is fresh basil leaves teasing with aromatic, herbal notes. Gooey grated Parmesan cheese is then sprinkled on top. This dish is a nice shareable starter that won't leave you full before the main entree.

Friendly foodie tip: The lamb appetizer pairs well with the rustic bread from Macrina Bakery to sop up all that saucy goodness.

PAESAN KITCHEN AND BAR, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 6 a.m. to midnight Friday, 8 a.m. to midnight Saturday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday, 1701 Dock St., Tacoma, 253.301.2396
