Ended up there last night after being scared away from Vincenti by the responses to my previous post.

It was disappointing. We started with calamari fritti. They were a little tough, although the marinara sauce was excellent.

Next was tramezzino. This was very good. Polenta with mushrooms and melted cheese. Very rich.

The special app was grilled sardines, which my wife ordered as her main course. I found it terribly plain.

Another special that my daughter ordered was lobster risotto. I tasted tomato sauce but no lobster.

I had the costata di bue. It was a very ordinary rib eye served with a fried potato timbale that was mushy when it should have been crisp.

Two decent chocolate desserts, two glasses of white wine and a bottle of Robert Stemmler Pinot Noir ($58) brought the tab to $200.00 before tip.

Certainly, it was not bad, but neither was it good enough to contemplate returning.
