      Wow, quite the delay in posting. For those who use the search feature: I like Brunetta's for years. The grilled calamari is the best around. The crabcakes have crab, and not the Thai/Indo canned crap. The steak is interesting. My girlfriend goes for the pasta with garlic and broc. rabe. The food's honest, service good and unfettered and the price is just right to keep the riffraff out. And they let you smoke
