Al Di La... Overrated?

podd103 | Jul 22, 2010 09:42 AM

Al Di La is one of those that I constantly hear is amazing in thread after thread after thread. Bruni loved it, NY Mag loved it, etc. I have only been there twice but have yet to be amazed, and never thought it was even half as good as Franny's or even Get Fresh. I am hoping I just went on two off nights or that I ordered the wrong dishes (Once the risotto special with the squid, the other time the Pork Loin). Basically, I would like to be proved wrong. What dishes are the best to order there? What makes it so special to people? It's always mobbed and I have yet to find a good reason to wait.
