Tiberio's

While vacationing in Old Saybrook, CT earlier this week, my wife and I decided to give Tiberio's a try for the first time. It is a relatively new Italian restaurant in a small strip mall on Rte 1 (close to, but on the other side of the street from, Dairy Queen for those who know the area.) Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. The decor is lowkey, but clean and pleasant. The chefs prepare the meals in full view of the diners in a kitchen that is practically part of the dining room. Its menu clearly displays Italian roots, but it's not as "red saucey" as the venerable Luigi's up the street. My dinner was two veal scallopinis rolled and stuffed with a gorganzola, pignoli nut and herb stuffing and served with a plum tomato, portobello mushroom and garlic sauce (whole cloves-yum) on mashed potatoes. Delicious! My wife had the lasagna bolognese which had a creamy tomato sauce with identifiable chunks of different kinds of meat (not merely ground beef). An excellent green salad to start, a reasonably-priced but very good glass of house chianti and attentive, friendly service made it a place we'll return to. Any comments from others who may have dined there.
