My sister and I always have great luck when we go out for lunch or dinner, and just wing it.
Today, driving around the crazy Apponaug rotary on the way to who-knows-where for lunch, she said, "Want to try this new place, The Ripe Tomato?" I swerved into the lot. It's a tiny place, with a little bar, and the staff was very attentive.
The menu is simple without too many confusing options, but is 100% authentic Italian. My sister and I split the eggplant parmesan appetizer ($9) and each had a cup of soup ($4, which is actually the size of a bowl). We tried both the Chicken Escarole and the Escarole and Bean and both were absolutely delicious. In addition, we were served a mini loaf of Italian bread with Rosemary olive oil for dipping. With two tall cups of tea, and even some great quality ice water, the bill was around $22.
I wish I had taken photos of the food and the place, but when the food came, I just ate it all!
Do not miss this one if you like nice Italian food AND people :-)
