I just went to merenda two weekends ago...the food was awesome! i had one of the best pastas ever, the taglietelle with chanterelle mushrooms and white truffle oil. Also had the lamb ragout with carrots and white beans also very hearty and delicious. oh and one more -- a very simple and yummy salad with parmesian dressing.
The price was reasonable and the portions were generous.
this place is definitely a keeper.
