We found this out of the way restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to try it since we could not get into Lillian’s. Try it! It is in a quieter neighborhood behind the harbor on E. Cliff Drive, with plenty of parking. We guess because it is off the beaten path, there was hardly anybody there. They start you off with bread and an oil/vinegar dipping mix. For an appetizer, we started with the fried calamari, which also had some fried zucchini and carrot, and was served with a spicy marinara sauce. The zucchini in particular was a very nice addition! The fish lover had the catch of the day (snapper), which was grilled and topped with tomato, onions, garlic, and basil sauce. It came with roasted potatoes and a Tuscan salad mix. The other of us had veal scaloppini in a lemon sauce, which also came with roasted potatoes and the vegetable of the day (broccoli and carrots). Both entrees were very good, and were plenty filling, but Cameron, our nice waitress, talked us into waiting for a fresh-made chocolate soufflé with strawberries. It wasn’t huge, but it was also very reasonably priced at only $5. It came hot out of the oven with an oozy hot chocolate center – so good! We had a nice Sauvignon Blanc, and the total was just over $100 before tip.
This was a pleasant neighborhood restaurant with good food, although we would not compare it to a cozy Italian restaurant experience on Lake Como since it was lacking a bit in atmosphere. Cameron told us they would soon have a new pizza oven fired up, and it looks like they have now done so. You should pop in and try them – you will enjoy your meal.
