We shared the fried calamari ($8) to start and it was awful. The breading was so thick and heavy, I could have been eating fried rubber bands and not known it. I’m willing to bet that it was a frozen Sysco special.
After that, I was apprehensive about the entrees. Steve ordered the veal saltimbocca ($19) which came with a side of pasta and I had the spaghetti carbonara ($15). Luckily, the entrees redeemed the restaurant. My carbonara was perfectly al dente pasta coated in a luscious, creamy sauce studded with pancetta. The portion was generous; there was enough for lunch the next day. Steve’s veal was also delicious - it was tender and the sherry wine sauce was quite flavorful. His ziti was plain, but cooked correctly.
Perhaps because it was a slow night, our service was extra attentive - I think my water was topped off six times and we got asked “how is everything?” three times. The bread basket had serviceable baguette slices. We decided to forgo dessert, although they did have a strawberry panna cotta that sounded intriguing. The menu is extremely affordable with entrees ranging from $12-$23. There is a parking lot in back, but street parking was available even with all the snow.
