It's my sisters birthday tomorrow and although she's turning 25, she still says silly things like, "Why don't we go to Buca di Beppo or the Olive Garden?" God save us all!
I threw a hissy-fit about the prospect of such mediocre food and told her I would find a better place in the SF valley or in Pasadena. I've been doing some internet research and the options seem slim for good, affordable Italian. Any suggestions? Save me, please!!
