Colborne Lane--Loud?

We are deciding between Splendido and Colborne Lane for a friday night dinner (we could only get 6:30 reservations at both places). We are going with someone who tends to dislike louder places. I know that Splendido is wonderfully quiet, but I've heard that C.L. can get loud? What has been people's experience? How loud is C.L on an earlish Friday night? Close tables? Loud music?

  1. Noise level is, I would say, moderate to high. Music is quite loud and usually rather strange choices (Black Sabbath, etc.). It's just teetering on the edge of being conversation capable.

    Splendido is far more subdued and elegant in terms of atmospheric experience.
