Our meal at Five-O was very good. The service was a bit spotty; I prefer to have my appetizer plates cleared prior to the arrival of my dinner, but it was a busy night during a holiday weekend. We started our meal with cocktails; the bartender's choice martini, the Manhattan, and the coconut and ginger martini were all quite good. To start, we chose the snack offering, where diners are offered a variety of choices and can opt for five different items; we picked shaved prosciutto (it was run of the mill), provolone (two, thin, small wedges), warm olives (nice portion, pleasant tasting), meatballs (delicious) and pickle chips (also delicious). For a second appetizer we had the escargot, which was just so so. We asked to share the Caesar salad between two diners and they were nice enough to put it on two plates, each plate sporting half anchovy. The salad was an okay rendition. The entree star was the gnocchi with sweet corn and bacon; this was a meal worthy of a second visit. The bolognese, too, was well received. The strozzapretti with oxtail ragu and aged pecorino was good, as was the linguine with lobster and zucchini, but neither were memorable and both were a little heavy. We will go back to Five-O, it showed lots of promise; next time we'll choose a less busy weekend.
