A romantic neighborhood place, one said? On a corner shared with a cemetery, drugstore, and strip mall. Another said reasonable prices? Not for a neighborhood joint with what you get and don't get. A store front with 8-9 tables and a mini bar with unknown wines and no trained bartender. A large menu of many selections, which you quickly see are variations on three main entres with just different sauces and herbs.
But the worst, for which they should be closed: I ordered one of their several "veal" dishes. (I know,, veal is controversial to some.) After an ala carte "house salad" not worthy of a roadside diner. The small pieces of meat in an over-herbed clear sauce somehow didn't seem right. The meat was off color and not tender at all. The side of pasta tough as the meat, with a canned red sauce. But I ate and paid.
By coincidence, on one of the cooking boards a few days later, was an article on restaurant common substitutions. It seems that some places thin slice pork and call it veal. That explained it! The color, texture, and toughness. Pure attempted deception.
As an experiment, later at home I cooked some pounded-thin pork with their style of sauce and herbs. Much more tender.
If their's was not pork, but real veal, it was a very cheap cut and poorly prepared.
There are many nice neighborhood places. This is not one of them.
