Desiderio's, on the corner of Bowen & Broadway in Lancaster, has a winning combo with its dinner-theatre. We recently re-discovered the place after having previously visited its William Street location many times in the past. What drew us was an ad for its current play " Greetings" by local playwright Tom Dudzik; of "Over the Tavern" fame. We recently loved a play of his at the Kavinoky so we decided to give this a try. What attracted us were the reasonable prices for the combination of a nice dinner & a play. Our dinners were very good but we would recommend that they include a nice dinner salad as well. It would not cost much & would add so much ! Dinner started with a basket of bread & a cup of soup - choice of chicken vegetable or pasta fazool ( Idea - let diners pick between a salad or a soup ? Or just give both !) . Both soups were nice & hot & delish. My entree was the Tuscan chicken; my husband got the broiled haddock with tomato bruschetta topping. Other entrees included lobster, veal parmesan, fettucine alfredo & red sauced pasta. Prices are based on which entrees you pick ( in the range from $28 - 48). Both of our dinners had sides of roasted potatoes and veggies - the veggies were excellent & not overcooked. Dessert was a tiny dish of vanilla ice cream & a bit of chocolate sauce. The play "Greetings," was well performed & very funny. Everyone has an excellent view of the stage & you are very close to the action. The next production sounds good too -- the original play about Columbo the private eye, upon which the TV series was based with Peter Falk. This sounds so good we are sure to go back ! This would be an ideal outing for a group of friends too.
