The menu features fresh items provided by Grateful Acres Farm, Green Meadow Farms, Lancaster Coop, Z Farm and DiGiacomo Brothers. With C19’s seasonal menu, the pair of chefs strive to bring each vegetable, fruit, herb and meat that comes to the table is at its peak of flavor.

The new menu boasts dishes such as Venetian Specialty Small Plates include Chicken Liver Pate, Pork Belly Brasato over Radicchio, Pine Nuts and Raisins, Sage Roasted Rabbit Leg, and Roasted Tomato Gnocchi. Main course offerings feature from Pasta A’Matriciana, Fresh Pasta with House Cured Panchetta and Spicy Marinara, Wild Mushroom Risotto with Oyster, Shiitake, Porcini Mushrooms, White Truffle Oil, and Piadinas, or thin Italian flatbreads made daily by Signora Anna a Sardegna Native, with fresh toppings ranging from Spanish Octopus and Squid Ink to Mozzarella and Dry Aged Beef Venetian Meatballs.
