I have a friend coming in from out of town that we're meeting for dinner somewhere in the vicinity of Palo Alto or RWC or vicinity.
She's not an adventurous eater and dislikes fish. She said she'd prefer an Italian place - I really want to take her to a non-chain. She usually goes to them because she feels they're safe.
Anyhow, I'd be very happy with any recommendations you could make - we're looking to spend around $10-20 or so per entree, so nothing too expensive please!
