A couple of weeks ago we went to Blasi for dinner on a Friday night. Arrived at 7pm to a 30-minute wait (we noticed by 8pm there was no wait). We spent the 30-minute wait sitting on a bench staring at the deli counter at the attached Fat Belly Deli. Mmmm...delicious prosciutto, provolone, sopresatta, etc. So I was pretty surprised when we were seated that the dinner menu did not contain a single sandwich or deli product. Oh well.
The menu is primarily Italian...standard pastas, parms, etc. We both started with dinner salads and a side of ridiculously syrupy balsamic dressing. DC had the pasta special: pasta with squid which was buttery, rich and delicious. I had the bbq steak tips with mashed potatoes which were tasty. Far too much food to eat there, so we took generous portions home. Gordon Ramsey would be appalled. Of course it didn't help that we each ordered a chocolate chip cannoli for desert.
The atmosphere here is cozy and friendly. There is a fun bar and lots of tv screens showing the games. Prices are reasonable.
