We went back and forth about where to eat tonight. Bowl'd? China Village? Cosecha?
Then my husband said, I've got it. Giovanni's (downtown Berkeley, Shattuck @ Channing). Yes!
Veal parmigiana w/ linguini with red sauce. We don't go often, but sometimes it's just what this New England mill-town girl/Yonkers-born guy get a craving for.
But they didn't have it!
We asked why--too expensive, so they took it off the menu. We settled for chicken parmigiana. Not bad, but goes without saying: not the same.
So where in the East Bay is there an old-style red sauce joint w/ good veal parmigiana?
