From the appetizer thru the dessert -- everything was memorable. Shortly after being seated we were served a basket of piping hot bread with a side of olive oil with fresh parm cheese. We started with a full carafe of wine ($32) and the stuffed eggplant appetizer with a light tomato basil sauce. Very good! The eggplant was perfectly prepared - my only feedback here would be that they should have peeled the eggplant. The skin was very tough, the eggplant itself was very good. We moved on to a mixed green salad and the special Italian salad. The Italian salad was a meal in itself -- priced just below $7 and well worth it! The mixed green salad was fine, simple...lightly dressed. The Italian salad was very yummy! Fresh romaine, olives, salamis, mozzarella, diced cucumbers and high quality blue cheese crumbles. Simple put -- you need to get it! My significant other got the linguine and shrimp while I ordered the risotto special. Both were very yummy..The risotto had grilled chicken, fresh asparagus, mushrooms and a nice light cheese sauce. Probably the best I ever had....After all of this, we were pretty stuffed but considering the outstanding quality of the food we could not pass up dessert....We ordered tiramisu. It was a little different than the traditional style that we are familiar with, but it was good. It seemed to be lean on the tiramisu and high on a fluffy white topping. It was not whipped cream, more like a white chocolate mousse. Good, but I've had better. The prices were moderate, considering the high quality of the food. The atmosphere was happy, busy, active. All positives.....The attire of the wait staff was very informal -- jeans and restaurant themed t-shirts. I was OK with it, but someone used to a fine dining experience may have been taken back. We both dressed up (dress slacks, etc) but we could have gotten away with jeans. I did make a reservation. I called earlier in the day asking if I could move the reservation up a 1/2 hour and was told no - that they had "quite a bit of reservations and could not accommodate". We opted to show up early and try our luck, if we could not be seated we would sit at the bar. Well....when we got there we were seated right away and they could have absolutely accommodated an earlier reservation. The place was busy, but there were empty tables several times while we were there. I would definitely recommend this place.
