Ate there last night for the first time, as I was kinda stuck on AlDiLa for my italian. Completely different vibe; very comfy country feel to the space as well as the menu. Start with the $19 bottle wine special, the Lucas & Lewellen Pinot Noir is a steal and was flying out to the tables. Grab the carpaccio, but split it, it's big. In fact, everything seemed big as I looked around. Certainly the veal scallopine and the Garganelli with braised pork ragu we ordered were big enough for the next day's lunch. I have to mention the staff. From greeting, (they obviously have regulars as shown by the hugs) to the table, (Michael was our waiter and very good at his job, you almost want him to sit down and join you.) But most impressive was the scanning of the room by everyone there. Every one of them look at everything as they go by, and whoever that guy in the kitchen whites was with his hands folded behind his back as he checked plates going out is scary good.
OK, here's the downside, felt a little too far away from my date at the two top. No star loss on that, next time I will try to hit one of those cushioned banquet booths!
