Thank you to the hounds who suggested Remezzo at Warden and Sheppard when I was searching for a place to to take a new-mom girlfriend for a birthday dinner in her 'hood. The place had kind of 80's Italian resto decor, but the menu pleased her to no end!
Three girls had fried calamari (surprisingly tender!), garlic bread with cheese (memories of my fave snack as a waitress), veal piccata, veal marsala, a fettucini/chicken/spinach/sundried tomato pasta, followed by 2 desserts (chocoate torte, pecan-carmel supercrunch thing), 2 cappucino, 1 hot chocolate, 1/2 ltr decent Pinot Grigio and 3 cocktails - total 126.00...boy you can't beat those prices!
I have to say, I fully enjoyed my pasta and the girls ate everything on their plates..pronouncing it all "delicious" - veal was tender, garlic mashed were heavenly and veg, though standard broccoli/carrot combination, were perfectly cooked.
Our waiter was sweet, though a bit frightened of us after we requested a birthday table dance...he ensured we had what we needed, but kept his distance so we could have our girltalk.
Given the prices and the overall quality of the food, I would definitely head back if I were ever in the area again!
