On a recent visit to The Vinyards, my wife and I had a very unique experience, but let's start with the food! We both ordered from the regular menu with a carafe of wine. We started with an appetizer, "cannoli de melanzanne" which was eggplant stuffed with ricotta cheese and topped with marinara sauce. What a great choice! This was almost enough for us to split as our entre!! The eggplant was lightly breaded and fried to a nice crispy texture. Delicious!!
My wife ordered linguine with white clam sauce and I ordered veal marsala. Both entres were cooked to perfection, and the salads and garlic knots were both delicious. Here comes the cool part.....in conversation with our server, we found out that she was an opera singer. I mentioned that I'd love to hear her sing some time. Well, when she brought the check, she actually sang about 30 seconds from an aria, and the whole restaurant went into a dead silence. She stood right there, not even 2 feet from us and sang right to us. It was amazing! When she finished, she got applause from the whole place! We will return many more time, and even if we don't get a private performance, we'll get some great food!
