Made it here today for lunch, all in all a good experience. Our waiter was trying to really, really upsell us which was a bummer. The first thing he recommended (after we’d already ordered what proved to be enough food) was the 65 dollar veal parm. Though he was probably just annoyed with the Jersey guy sitting nearby that complained about literally everything, explained that his wife made the best veal parm he’d ever had and also said that his wife was a Zagat reviewer so she knows food… Said Jersey guy also didn’t like the lemon cheesecake and recommended the cook make a ricotta cheesecake instead…
The garlic bread, mozzarella, and salami were sublime. Woulda gladly done an entire meal of those appetizers.
The caesar was fantastic and the croutons were just perfect. What a take on a classic.
I could have used just a little more spice with the vodka rigatoni, though it was still delicious.
We ended up also doing the tortellini al ragu because my mother hates everything seafood-related. That would not have been my pasta of choice and unfortunately it was as heavy as I expected it to be. This would be a great dish to share with like five people so you get one or two bites each, anything more seems like overkill.
And those meatballs, damn they were extraordinary.
