la locanda del ghiottone

just tried it tonight.
suprised was able to get a walk in for 2, w/o waiting.
guess just lucky b/c timing and summer.
was as good as it shoulda been.
had maglagliati(sp?) (triangle shaped pasta) for appetizer
and the osso buco for entree,
while my companion had involtini de salmon and swordfish, respectively.
all were top notch, as was the dessert.
we couldn't decide between the applecake and tiramisu, and the waitress was nice enough to cut half of each, which together was larger than i expected.
they do sorta get you to spring for carbonated or spring water though.

    This place was amazing. I do agree - they get you with the spring water, but all else was top-notch. I had the sword fish, my good friend had the linguine with sausage and seafood, step-dad had the osso bucco, mom had the lamb. Everything we had was incredible and to top it off, we had the tiramisu which was the best dessert we have all ever tried. Service was excellent as well as the atmosphere. Highly recommended!
