In a bind over Italian Food!
So I have hip, sophisticated in-laws in town and wanted to go to Bellavite (haven't been there before), but the first reservation was at 10:30.
1. Since they close at 12:00, is this too late to enjoy a meal by the time we sit down?
2. Worse case- is Da Andrea an equal substitute?
I love Da Andrea, the food is great, but it would be a stretch to consider it a place for the "hip and sophisticated". Bellavitae was okay, not great, but in fairness I went when they first opened. Not many places come to mind that fit your needs and would have availability. Falai is a good rec but it may be difficult to get in. Are you looking for hip and sophisticated food or atmosphere?
