Italian Barrel is one of our favorites, but last night the luster was dulled. The chef was not in the kitchen(Monday) and unfortunately the food reflected her absence. The special, floured veal chop was over cooked and tasteless with a bunch of Parma ham on top. It was like dry tasteless veal chop tempura. The veal scallopini, also had thick flour coating with the sauce tasting nothing but flour.
We will be back because it is a very good restaurant we enjoy. Chef just has to make sure the sous chef can handle the task when she is out.
