Dinner @ DiGiacinto

Wife’s only requirement for dinner tonight, regardless of location, was garlic cheese bread. This was great. Melty cheese, plenty of fresh garlic, tasty housemade Italian bread. Served with a great warm marinara sauce.

House salad came out next. Loved the addition of salami and provolone. I like my Italian vinaigrette dressing a little sweeter, but all in all a good salad.

Went with the traditional lasagna for my entree. It came out topped with marinara sauce instead of the bolognese sauce mentioned on the menu, but they were quick to bring out a side dish of the meat sauce. Glad they did. The sauce was made with a great tasting Italian sausage and really added to the dish. Everything’s better with sausage.

My wife went with the ravioli trio: spinach artichoke, cheese and seafood–2 each. My favorite was the spinach. Hers was the cheese. The alfredo sauce had just a touch of marinara which we both enjoy.

I also tried one of their scratch made meatballs. Great flavor, but I like my meatball to have a slightly lighter texture. They’d be great on a sub sandwich.

Overall really enjoyed the meal. Place had a great atmosphere. Seems like it has a large following of regulars, which I really appreciate. Kind of like an Italian “Cheers”, except not a bar. We’ll be back. Maybe one of these days they’ll know our name.
