  1. It's not a great list, but if I had to choose, I would go with Alice Fazooli's. It will please the MIL and the 10 year old, and while the food isn't outstanding, it's fairly reliable.
    I hate Red tomato/Fred's Not Here and I hate once at Montana and regretted it.

    1. Kit Kat or Alice Fazooli's.
      If it's a nice evening, Fazooli's has a very nice outdoor patio in the back.

      1. Kama is by far my favourite restaurant on that list, but since that's out I guess I would agree with the others on Fazoolis.

        1. I like Fred's but when are you going since it is summerlicious and some of those restraurants are participants.

          1. I used to go to the Red Tomato until I realized what good food was. I like Kit Kat the best of the remainder of the list, but Kama is for sure my top choice otherwise. I think Badali's is the best of that Front Street row of restaurants. Just curious, what does that package cost per head?

              119.00 plus tax and fee's. The 4 tickets came to 507.00 all in!!

              The reason we went w/ the package was because it included a top price ticket. The top price tickets are 110.00 alone. Also, the better seats are saved for the package.

            2. Kit Kat, Kit Kat, Kit Kat!

              I've worked at Fred's/Red Tomato and the food really is terrible, sometimes microwaved. Had friends who worked at Joe Badali's and it's smilar. Montana's is really just a bar, not truly focused on food. Alice Fazooli's would be my second choice.

              1. I made the reservation at Kit Kat. Here is the menu

                  Just reporting on the meal. As expected, it was no big whoop. My 3 dining partners( 1 of them was 10) enjoyed it so I guess it was a success. We all had the ceasar salad. The salad was basic with 1 slab of grilled toasted bread acting as a crouton. No bacon on the salad( which I prefer because I'm American and am used to the traditional cesar salad).

                  2 of us had the stuffed chicken breast. It was slightly dry. 1 had the penne and 1 had the ravioli. 3 of us had the tartufo which is not made in house. My spouse had the tiramasu which was totally oversoaked in espresso. It was horrible.

                  One thing I hate about restaurants is when they dont offer free refills on pop. 2 of us had diet coke, 1 milk and 1 coffee and the bill was about 10.00.
