Ended up going off-menu for dinner. The bartender is an old friend (that's how we ended up choosing this particular restaurant) and he knew thru social media about my Keto lifestyle. He suggested that ask the kitchen to make something special without being too complicated.

It was a grilled chicken breast smothered in a the sauce they use for the Gnocchi Gorgonzola.
So basically cream, butter, gorgonzola, and pepper.

Absolutely delish :) Fantastic.

Like any Italian restaraunt there is a minefield of pasta to be avoided, but they seem to have a number of interesting choices.

What caught my eye was in the specialty section:
- Pollo Matteo's
- Chicken Involtino

Lemon chicken and stuffed pork chop both look ok. as does the side salad..request with no onion.
heres what i would do. CALL THEM. most restaurants are happy to deal with special diets. I know i bend over backwards to accomadate..i want your business and will do what i can to keep you coming back.
So call..explain you have a dietary concern. Tell them you can have zero bread, sugar, whatever. Ask if they would prepare something off menu for you. I'm betting they wont have a problem with it.
Ask questions. do they use 100% real butter. is there sweetener in the sauce. Can I please get my meal without potatos or spaghetti.
They will appreciate your calling ahead so they can have something ready to cook fresh..and you will stay keto.
I dont eat out often, but when i do this is what i do..and i've NEVER had anyone say we dont do that or thats awful. Even at Disney..the chefs came out to speak to me, and a couple asked questions about keto and said they would love to put some keto items on their menus! like i said...they want to please....

Going out to dinner at a new restaurant, an Italian place. It's local, so they don't have nutrition info published on their website.

I don't like seafood, so that's out. And obviously I'm not going to have pasta with my Keto WOE.

Total net carbs for the day (not including dinner) are 3g, so I've got some wiggle room.
Also, my calories for the day are only at 400 or so, and I typically have 1100-1400, so I do have wiggle room there also. Pellegrino to drink, so no carbs/cals there either.

Add to that, I never eat a full portion when I go out to dinner - I always immediately box up half of it.

Can you folks check out the menu at this place and let me know your thoughts?
I had steak for dinner last night, and leftover steak for breakfast, so I'm not wanting to do steak again...

ETA: I know that one day of higher carb won't kill me, but I'd *prefer* to stay on-plan if I can.
