Despite some warnings from Chowhound and elsewhere I went with a big group to Aliseo.
Not much good to report other than the wine. We started off with figs and prosciutto, stuffed olives and tiny meatballs. All of those appetizers were passable but we should have stopped there. The pastas were flavorless. Pasta with octopus and chickpeas was bland and disappointing for such an interesting mix. The traditional bolognese was weak - the fact that so little was dabbed on a big plate of pasta didn't help. The desserts were a let down as well. At $60 a head for an ultimately unremarkeable bording on bad meal... Next time I listen to the chowhounds.
