Pina's Bistro in Tustin - Veal Parm

I went here recently after not having gone there in what seems like ages. Usually, I'd get their Eggplant Parm Hero, or Meatball Sub, which are both great.

This time I tried the Veal Parmigiana dinner and it was exceptional, expertly breaded and fried pounded veal, light, well-modulated tomato sauce, and a side of just al dente spaghetti, and the fresh baked bread did not hurt none.

Only the tiramisu which I had remembered being much creamier and supremely delicious changed quite a bit from what I remembered. But since all the desserts are homemade it would be kind of weird if the taste, texture, and all around flavor of the tiramisu changed over the years.

Anyhow, overall, great stuff. Though expensive for the hole in the atmosphere. I believe most of the veal preparations where 25 bucks, and a veal ravioli is like 20 bucks, tiramisu about 9 bucks, and a veal chop at 38 bucks. But the prices still seem a little high too me.

What do you think? (if you've been before)
