This is the first time we ate here. We actually walked in a few weeks ago to check out the menu as we were eating nest door and had to wait for our table. We liked what we had seen in respect to a clean and well designed interior. The menu looked pretty good with some unique dishes but was just a wee bit pricey. None the less this area is full of mediocre restaurants and we are more than happy to pay more for quality and creative cuisine. As a local resident we really want to give the local restaurants our business.
My family, Wife and 2 boys aged 12 and 16 were excited about trying this new establishment. Like I said the interior is well designed. The lighting is ambient and relaxing. The furniture, couch, chairs and table are very pleasant and comfortable. We ordered 3 appetizers. The Calamari with Wasabi sauce . the New Zealand Muscles and the Spinach Souffle. The Muscles in a rich creme sauce was very very good. The four of us were fighting over the last remaining one. The Souffle was prepared well except for the fact that it was a wee bit bland. The Calamari, unfortunately, was lacking. We thought it was a bit "well done" and asked the waiter if it was supposed to be prepared in this manner? He returned it to the kitchen and brought another. It was almost the same, nothing to write home about. I think the oil used may be the issue? It had little redeeming feature and the Wasabi sauce was lacking any kick at all. To me it was almost a Russian dressing. I scratch my head and wonder why this would even be on the menu when prepared like this?
Our main dishes were Osso Buco (two orders), lamb shoulder (rose marry), and the hamburger. My 16 year old, as most boys big and small, love a good burger. This one was very good. The lamb shoulder was only fair as it was not seasoned well (Drats). That was a real shortcoming. Even a rose marry lamb dishwith peppermint sauce needs a bit of salt and pepper? I was hoping for something better. Oh well. Am glad to say the Osso Buco was Very Very good.
For desert we ordered the Strawberry Shortcake, the "la opera", a cheese cake, and Tiramisu. Each and every desert was Very, Very good. My favorite was the Strawberry Shortcake. This place does a great desert!
Tito Chef scored high marks on ambiance, cleanliness,and service. The food was good but I think the chef needs to focus on training his cooks. Now... The deal with this restaurant is that they want to deliver a quality product at a fair price. The way they accomplish this is by cutting down on the size of the portion. And that they did. So go there with the idea of quality on your plate and not quantity. if you do so i think you will be a satisfied diner. I will definitely be going back.
