Went to the remodeled Dopo last night around 9:30. Parked right in front, walked in, sat right down as the expanded place was only about half full (probably the same number of customers that would have meant a line at the old place), though they said there's still a line on weekends. No longer need to go out in the alley to get to the bathroom. More comfortable furniture, new tables have smoother tops.
Food was as good as ever. Antipasto misto for 2 ($24) included a sauteed Gulf shrimp crostone, fregola with lamb meatballs, and a plump housemade sausage spiced with fennel, black pepper, and hot pepper with lentils. This was very substantial, would have made a good meal for one. Followed with malloreddus (Sardinian saffron gnocchi) and a rapini pizza.
