I couldn't find a thread that focussed on my favourite neighbourhood trattoria so I thought I'd have a go at starting one. Then I thought, do I really want to advertise how tasty, good value, great service and a cozy room combined with free and easy parking are all rolled into such a wee spot that it's going to be even harder to get a reso? So I thought better of it and decided not to post. But then I started reliving my recent birthday dinner there and how much I enjoyed it, and decided to go ahead. This is the kind of place you find people of all ages, celebrating events or just that it's Tuesday. When we went last weekend we even had a Brush with Fame as Brent Butt and his lovely SO and fellow Corner Gas-er Nancy Robertson were on their way out as we arrived. Now if I could only bring myself to order something other than the short ribs as a main... mmm, short ribs... and the panna cotta... oh yeah...
