Thanks to the poster for recommending Crispo. It had the right atmosphere and value we were looking for. To start, we had the risotto balls and cheese plate. Risotto balls were just like they should be - crunchy outside and soft and gooey inside. My friends got the special: spaghetti and veal meatballs -very good. I ordered the special: papardelle with wild mushrooms and tomato - not a good choice. The papardelle was over-cooked, and they stuck to each other. In general, the dish was very bland. Next time,I have to try their signature dishes. The restaurant, at least the back garden, has a very lively atmosphere. It's a great place for dinner with friends.
