Went last night to celebrate a birthday. Somewhat disappointing. We had a good meal, but I thought it was not comparable to Marsilio's. The de rigeur bread and seasoned olive oil--seemed to be 2 different kinds of bread, one richer than the other; the richer was well-heated, the plainer unevenly warm. The olive oil seasonings were lackluster. Because soup or salad accompanied the meal we bypassed appetizers and cut to the chase. Tomato-parmesan soup was quite good, salad with caesar dressing was overdressed. My husband had a veal with spinach, procuitto and fontina. It was quite good: the veal sauced (lightly) in a complex reddish sauce. The penne which accompanied it was run-of-the-mill penne in red sauce (not the same as the meat sauce). At the recommendation of the waitress I opted for a veal and crab rollentini (special of the night/week). Beautiful presentation of two rollentini, halved on a slant, came with delicious potato gnocchi. It was good, don't get me wrong, but the crab stuffing was sort of a puree and (I can't believe I'm saying this) was overpowering. I ended up scraping it off, so that I could limit how much crab went with each bite. I left a lot of crab on the plate. Coffee came with biscotti.
