I know that Legal takes a lot of hits on this board but I had 2 recent visits and both were quite good. Yesterday 4 of us went for lunch. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating. We split the Pesto and Shrimp Pizzette and a Spinach Dip. Both were quite good as was the bean dip served with the average rolls. The clam chowder was outstanding and the lobster that my son had was perfectly cooked (they were still serving hard shell which was a surprise). During a recent visit to Fiorellas, I ordered the Chicken Parm, though not a large order, it was a good deal for about $14 and quite good, nice and crisp. On a recent Saturday night, we ended up at Santarpios when we could not get into Rino's. We ordered the combination Barbecue (lamb and sausage) and a Sausage, Mushroom and Onion Pizza. The combo bbq never came (but we were charged for it) and the pizza was very disappointing. I am all about the crust and this crust not great...way too thick. Stoddards was also disappointing, very noisy and over-priced for what we got. I ordered the hanger steak which was very tasty but only about 2-3 oz of meat if I were to estimate. Another party ordered the Pork Tenderloin and was not happy with it at all...too pink and not tasty.
