THE EXPRESS ITALIAN EATERY WESTDALE
1034 King Street West, Hamilton, On., (289) 389-2008, Sun. - Wed. 11:30 - 10:00 pm, Thurs. - Sat. 11:30 - 11:00 pm
Went to the Express, in the Westdale Village in Hamilton, early on a Saturday evening for a light dinner. It is a relatively new establishment in Westdale, that serves wood oven pizza in an open kitchen, panini, soup, salads, pastas etc.. It is licensed and the house red was only $6 a glass.
It has a quaint bar area
and a variety of seating, including a window view of the village.
There is a wood oven and take out service.
I checked the menu.
I chose the Muffaletta panini. It included salami, mortadella, prosciutto, arugala and provolone and came with a soup or salad for $12.
The soup was prosciutto and potato, it was rich but quite salty (because it contained large chunks of prosciutto).
The panini was crisp and quite thick with rich meats.
By the time I was finished the restaurant was filling up.
All in all it was a nice meal. The service was efficient, the food was tasty (albeit very salty) and the prices were reasonable. There is another much larger Express located at the other end of Hamilton in Stoney Creek on Grays Road.
