We've loved the look of Faustina since it took up residence in downtown Salt Lake City a little under two years ago. Between the smooth gray river rocks lining the front path and the avocado green walls inside, it embodies more than a few of our favorite things.

And yet we could probably count on one hand the number of times we've been to the Italian-inspired eatery. Given that we both work in the burbs, it just isn't a convenient lunch spot for us. So with Friday being the conclusion of a grueling workweek and the launch of a holiday weekend, we decided to get the party started with a decidedly downtown meal.

Shrimp Bisque - served with grilled prawn and cilantro confetti - $4.25

The soup was poured table side: silky bisque cascading into a bowl of shrimp and cilantro.

Light and refreshing. J cleaned his plate.

Three-Cheese Macaroni - $9.95

Comfort food Faustina-style: thick, creamy and not the least bit hip and thigh friendly. I'm thinking this is a little combo of asiago, cheddar and romano.

Faustina's such a beautiful little retreat...hopefully we'll get back sooner as opposed to later.
