Dinner for 7 had an appealing start when we entered and found the restaurant to be fully occupied, but with no sense of being jammed together. It was a cold night but the place was warm. The service was excellent and although we chatted for a while without really deciding on our choices for meals, we were not pressed by waiters to order. When we had decided, the waiter took orders quietly and the entrees arrived fairly soon afterwards.The garlic pizza crust was a tasty alternative to garlic bread and the tomatoes on the bruschetta were particularly sweet. The main courses arrived and we were all very pleasantly surprised by the very generous portions. I've often eaten miserly main courses served on enormous plates, so this was a noteworthy difference. We ordered an Italian wine, which was expensive, and possibly marked up too much, but after large main courses, we were not in a mood to quibble. All the meals were well cooked with generous servings of veal, prawns and each of the main ingredients. I had ordered a side of asparagus and salad, which did not arrive, for which I was grateful, as the main course was easily sufficient, but it was a slip, and the waiter agreed to cancel it. The service was excellent and the ordered coffee and two desserts arrived promptly and were delicious. I and other diners were too full for desserts, and on future visits, I would be tempted to order entree size main courses,so as to comfortably enjoy a dessert. Total cost including wine was $60 per person, very reasonable for good food,generous servings and friendly, efficient (except for the missed side dish) service. Would recommend it.
