Price Difference for Lunch vs. Dinner

I went to this great Italian restaurant with my husband last week for lunch. We enjoyed the attentive service, the food was very good, and the prices were pretty reasonable. I just made dinner reservations because I’m celebrating birthdays with two friends. I went to their website afterwards and noticed that some of the prices were a lot higher. I didn’t check everything, but I noticed the appetizers were about $1 more, the sampler appetizer was $3 more, the pasta I had for lunch was $6 more ($15.95 instead of $9.95), and the desserts $1 more. A phone call confirmed that the amount of food is the same.

I was a little taken aback especially on the price difference of the entrees. Perhaps I normally don’t go to nice restaurants for lunch and therefore don’t notice that there are differences in the prices. I know there are different menus as in different foods being served at lunch vs. dinner. I guess I didn’t realize that the prices were that big of a difference when I’m not getting more food. I’m still going but thought I’d ask you all to see if there were any opinions about this.
