Went to Donato Enoteca for Italian food. It's across from the Redwood City Public Library, parking lot next to the library - FREE after 6pm. Valet parking available too.
Got there late around 8pm. Didn't have reservations - best to make them here because it's popular. Service can be slow when busy.
Still or Sparkling. Still is just tap water in the glass bottle. Sparkling - they charge you $5.50.
FREE bread w/ green dipping sauce. Ask for refills if you want more.
Bigoli e Coda $15 - pasta w/ some tiny bits of oxtail. Just ok.
Side of brussel sprouts $4 - just ok
Calamaretti e faglidi $9 - grilled calamari appetizer. Fine.
Soft polenta a side dish $4 - fine.
Spaghetti neri $15 - nice pasta w/ black squid ink. I liked it ok.
Gls Vermentino Canayli $9 - glass of white wine. B. liked it.
Sparkling water $5.50
$61.50 + $5.69 tax = $67.19 before tip.
They have a Weekly Prix Fixe Meal - 3 course for $32 (appetizer, main, dessert). That seems like a good deal.
Little Italian candy by the host desk - grab some on the way out.
Separate bathrooms in the back by the bar on the Right. Women's just single toilet/sink.
