I'm going on Thursday... Italian night. Any recs.

    My wife had the prix fixe Italian dinner. She started out with an arugula salad that was very good. Main course was a braised veal... god, but didn't knock her socks off. Our niece had the ravioli which we all enjoyed sampling. I had the tuna tatare... great!! (I know you are not fond of sushi.) The two of us both ordered the pork chop. It was outstanding. I decided early to get the entree. When she announced she was getting the same, I was disappointed that there was one less item for me to sample.
    The specials were a rack of lamb and another lamb preparation. Both sounded great, but I just had lamb the other night and decided to stick with the pork. The wine... a Barolo suggested to us was very enjoyable.
    All of us loved the meal. My wife and I will definitely return to our latest favorite restaurant. (The niece lives in Florida).
    I would love to find a good Inn near JA.

      Sorry, but we try to keep Chowhound focused on finding great chow. Discusison of where to stay is off topic for our site.

      Just returned from a great meal! One of three have the fixed priced special.. the other two ate ala carte. All was wonderful.. the hour and 1/2 drive well worth it.
      I wouldn't mind finding a half way decent place to stay nearby.
