Casual Cal-Ital place in Oakland?

michelography | Oct 3, 2003 01:20 PM

I'd like to take my mom to a nice, but not terribly expensive ($10-16 mains, but more toward the $10) or formal, place in Oakland, preferably in the Rockridge, Grand Lake, or Piedmont areas.

Her diet is health-conscious, so I'm looking for things like fish dishes, light pastas, nice California salads, etc.

I've tried Spettro a few times and was disappointed. Mezze was good, but I think that's a little more pricey than what I'm looking for.

Basically, I'm looking for something like the restaurant Chow or Park Chow in SF -- pleasant atmosphere, variety of dishes, good, wholesome food, and reasonable prices.

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks kindly!
