We made small talk with an older gentleman who was waiting for a friend--he told us about the neighborhood and local restaurants (this one he's been coming to for 20+ years)
Later on the best line we overheard from his table was from his companion, a younger woman. "You have a chauffeur, I do not."
Our dinner was excellent, paired with a Montepulciano and followed by a complimentary Limoncello. We both got the 2 course set dinner with fried cheese wrapped in prosciutto with mustard greens and very tasty cherry tomatoes.
We also shared a fried calamari appetizer.
I had spaghetti carbonara and Wayne had spaghetti marinara with mussels.
It was delicious, but so filling we couldn't finish.
