If you have been to the Asheville area, the food scene is tremendous. One of our favorite Italian restaurants in the area is Chiesa. When they first opened years ago, we stopped by and had a great experience. We have been back many times since, and each time they hit a home run. While I was there recently celebrating with some family, I pulled my camera out and took these photos to remind me of how good it all tasted, and to show you what they are working with over there. Deliciousness!
This beet salad was to die for. I love beets! Know that right now.
These stuffed mushrooms were some of the best I’ve ever had. Probably because of their farm-to-table approach.
The Scallops were amazing, and the sauce accented it perfectly!
A good old Italian dinner, with a little shrimp addition!
This is the Pesto Shrimp Scampi, and it was so good!
Martini to cleanse the palate while eating this Italian feast!
Gotta get some ice cream for dessert
Panna Cotta with peaches on top. Yes!
So beautiful and inviting from the outside.
Chiesa means “Church” in Italian, and they are located in an old church on Montford Avenue, 3 minutes from downtown. Find out more information about this delicious Italian restaurant in Asheville on the Chiesa website.
