My wife, Rin, and I at here for lunch on her birthday. We ate here primarily because they had garlic bread on the menu. Being from Canada, garlic bread is on the menu at almost every restaurant. For some reason, that doesn't seem to be the case in the USA. I'm happy to report that the garlic bread didn't disappoint. It wasn’t the best garlic bread we’d ever had, but it was good, cheesy and well toasted. The rest of the meal, well, that’s a different story.
Both Rin and I had Coke to drink so nothing exciting there. I had the Pollo Parmigiana (Chicken Parmigiana), which wasn’t that great. The breading was soft as if it had been prepared earlier in the day then left to get soggy. The marinara tasted like Ragu, just like any old canned sauce. The mozzarella was probably the main redeeming quality of the dish. Melted nicely without getting brown and hard.
Rin had Baked Ziti. She just didn’t like it. Again, she thought the sauce was bland, just like out of a can (I should mention that Rin makes her own sauce, so that's usually our basis for whether or not a sauce is good).
We’re both huge fans of Italian food, and we both usually enjoy pasta of all kinds, but I have to say, we both walked away from the mains a bit disappointed. Well, maybe more than a bit. We hoped that dessert would be a good end to the meal.
For dessert, I got the Ice Cream Bomb, which was vanilla and chocolate ice cream which chocolate sauce. I want to say there was something special about it, but there just wasn't. It was good, but nothing mind blowing, from what I can recall.
Rin had the Cheesecake. Apparently, it’s the Chef’s Signature Cheesecake. It came with a neat little syrup drawing of Lady and the Tramp, and Rin though that it was the best part of the meal.
