just ate there last night. i searched this board and not much on this place.

i have to say i was pleasently surprised. i was expecting a medicore meal but was surprised with a good dinner.

we had 2 pasta dishes...

Tagliolini Shrimp $16.
Home-made pasta sautéed with rock shrimp and julienned zucchini with a spicy garlic sauce
this one was very good. it had a hint of spice and the garlic sauce was great.

we also had another dish thats not listed on thier website. i forget the name but it was a creamy sauce with mushrooms and chicken with Penne pasta. i for one am not a fan of mushrooms or the creamy sauce but it wasnt too bad.

with a bottle of wine and these two dishes, the total was $50

anyone else try this place? what are you thoughts? i am wondering if my low expectations and empty stomach made the meal taste a little better then it really was. i guess i have to go back again to double check! unless i get negative feedbacks here..haha
