I've been to AIDA a few times; even on our first visit, the owner, Joe, came over and greeted us and thanked us for coming in. We had a marvelous time sitting at the bar. Kate, our bartender was incredibly attentive, friendly, and funny. Try to go when she's there!
The pasta is all homemade, in-house. AIDA tries to source local ingredients when possible. My favorite dish is the lobster, crab, and shrimp pasta, in tarragon cream sauce. Amazing. Not a huge serving, but it leaves you feeling totally satisfied.
This place is well worth the expense - especially when you're looking for a nice meal.
