Tappo is one of my favorite restaurants in Buffalo. They have traditional Italian dishes in a really trendy atmosphere. In the summer, you can dine on their rooftop patio that is spacious with plenty of seating, has a lounge area and a full bar.
Another awesome thing about Tappo is that they have $16 bottles of wine and champagne which is very inexpensive and typically unheard of in the city.
Along with a bottle of prosecco, we started with the garlic cheese bread and one of the appetizer specials, which was a stuffed banana pepper topped with a sunny side up egg.
Since I’m a sucker for goat cheese, I ordered the Goat Cheese Crespelle for my entrée which is basically a crepe filled with goat cheese served with banana peppers and both an alfredo and a red sauce. Best of both worlds!
The other entrees ordered were the Shrimp Risotto with roasted cauliflower and lobster beurre blanc, the Meat and Cheese Lasagna (which is huge!), one of the Rigatoni specials, and the meatballs. Everyone was really happy with their choices!
Tappo is located at 338 Ellicott Street.
