Connecticut Street is one of my daily haunts. I’m there all the time so when new places pop up, I take notice. I’ve been curious about Naci for a while now so when my friend suggested we eat there, I was more than willing to check it out.

The interior, spacious and well light. I liked the atmosphere, it was laid back and comfortable. The restroom (for those who care) was huge and came with a bathroom attendant. I thought that was pretty cool. It was empty when we went so I can’t comment on the sound level when it’s packed.


Our starter: Chorizo and Brie Puffs. This was okay. It has bananas in it. While I love bananas, I did not like them as an ingredient in this dish. I felt that the flavor overpowered the brie and the chorizo and it would have certainly tasted better without it.


Beef Caldereta Lasagna – Taste, good. It’s misrepresented though. My friend and I both agreed that 1) it doesn’t taste like beef caldereta and 2) it’s definitely not lasagna. It was a creamy ground beef mixture that had like 3 slices of lasagna noodles. The noodles were way too soft also so they added to the creaminess. It felt more like a stew in your mouth rather than a pasta. So again, the taste was okay but it was neither lasagna nor beef caldereta. This dish must be renamed.


Baked Pesto Salmon – This was very yummy. It’s good to share but I wish I got one just for myself.


Dessert – Tiramisu – Okay okay, we played it safe with our dessert. They had an entire selection of desserts but I was already quite full. Next time I will try their cupcakes.



In all, I was disappointed with my meal. I was full yet dissatisfied. Though I will give Naci another try since 4 courses is hardly enough to say whether a place is good or not. There were other menu items I wanted to try so I’ll be back for another go.
