Paisan (Berkeley) Family Style Dinner - Great Food, Great Value

I have always had a good experience at Paisan but yesterday they moved a notch up for us. We decided on the spur to eat at Paisan and it turned out to be their Wednesday Family Style Dinner Night. On the menu Asparagus Sformato, garlic grilled chicken with frisee, artichokes, panzanella and some interesting vegetable concoction, and baba au rum - and a glass of wine for $22. We thought that was really a great value but even better the food was so delicious - every item just really excited our taste buds. I did not even know what "Sformato" is exactly - it was delightful, and the chicken and different vegetables were finger-licking good and so was dessert.
