The four of us stopped in Friday nite at 6pm for dinner before the most fantastic performances by Bela Fleck and five other banjo players at the Calvin. We left after a most satisfying dinner, leaving our car in the lot.
The place quickly filled up, service was fairly prompt. The wine selection, a Chanting Classico, was very good (we had 2 bottles).
The salads were ok, Cesar, spicy Cesar, and two house salads. They did forget the white anchovies, but quickly retrieved some for us.
The dinners were very good: 1 Salated Cod, Shrimp and Scallops in a a very good red sauce on spagattini; 1 chicken Parmesan and 2 Seared scallops. Everyone was pleased with their choices.
Yes, the place was noisy, but it felt like vitality not overly loud.
The owner was on hand talking it up with the guests. He was pleasant and answered questions with grace. He seemed very happy to have moved the restaurant to a location that he owned. He was now "saving tons of money not paying a high rental cost associated with the previous location". He was also not worried about being listed 37 out of more than 50 restaurants in town. I surely hope that he reads these reviews, since some of the popular success and reputations of his restaurants do rely upon word-of-mouth and "published" reviews. This has always been a truism, but even more so now with these Internet Apps.
We had a really nice dinner in an upscale fun restaurant where the food was very good and the location with parking was very desirous.
