Ida's has been on my to go list for awhile. Seeing it's neon sign flash before me in a recent Bruin's commercial got me thinking about it; but it really was the driving rain on Friday that got me to go in. In other words it was the closest place and we still got drenched. It's a pleasant little dining room and the wait staff is friendly; but I just didn't care for it. Their red sauce is somewhat acidic and detracted from the veal which also had a mushy bread coating. I will say that I liked the stuffed mushrooms though. It also took an hour to get our meal and we were the second table to order. I understand that they have been there for 50 years, so at some point they must have been doing something right. Has anyone else been recently?
