Review Preview: Stellina Pasta Cafe

Mmm. Heavenly pig.

The "South Side Smoke" at Stellina Pasta Cafe is both a sandwich and a marvel of architecture, a great mass of pulled pork, caramelized onion and creamy, still-melting smoked Gouda that somehow holds together between slices of fresh ciabatta until the moment you try to pick it up. If you don't order it yourself, be sure someone with you does. It's an easy target, too plump to be snatched away from marauding forks.

So I'm a little late with this week's Review Preview. But don't let that be an excuse for missing this week's look at Stellina Pasta Cafe, a cool little spot turning out great homemade pastas and one fine pulled-pork sandwich. Read my thoughts here.
