C'era Una Volta in Alameda

I had been very excited about an authentically Italian restaurant opening in Alameda, so...Smart dining room, the nicest ladies'room I've seen in years, small interesting menu. But what's with the mustard in the olive oil presented with your bread? Service needs work - the waiter standing with our next course while we were still chewing, twice! When he brought bread and butter plates for us to split an order of pasta, I thought it was a joke, until I saw the SIX ravioli in the bowl. Fourteen dollars for spinach and ricotta ravioli is a bit much, especially when Oliveto charges about the same for enough homemade pasta for four people to taste. However, my bass and my husband's pork loin were delicious and they had a lemon tartufo, which was very refreshing. I haven't given up on this place, perhaps lunch will be a better experience.
