Carlo's Cucina - still getting it right!

I'd seen a couple of postings indicating that they might be going downhill, but am happy to report that last night at least it was as good as ever. We ordered a couple of classics - veal parmigiana and osso buco - and both were excellent. The veal in the parm was tender and tasty, and the osso buco was a large, thick, marrow-filled cut of shank served over a huge mound of risotto, all of it smothered with the sauce & veggies from the pot - SOOO good!

Friendly, efficient service and an excellent bottle of Chianti Classico made the entire experience a pleasure from start to finish, with a total tab for two (including 20%+ tip) of $88.

  1. I just love that place...

    1. Agree. Never had a problem and the food/service is always excellent.

      1. Bob, where's this place located?

        1. Brighton Ave near Harvard Ave

          1. It's small and often a wait, especially on weekends.

              Quite true. We got there last night about 6:30 figuring we'd beat the crowd, but we still had to wait fifteen minutes for a table.

              In light of that I'd like to revoke my comments above and tell you all that their food is AWFUL and you should all STAY AWAY!

              Thank you.
