      Bellagio. Pricey but delicious. A wonderful osso bucco. The only disappoint was the lacklustre performance of the Habs afterwards.

          Went to Bellagio Satuday night, and found it pricey but disappointing. I had the Linguini Gondoliera, which was not impressive, including exactly one scallop and some gritty mussels along with tasty clams and shrimp in a tomato-based sauce. My wife had the filet mignon with pepper sauce, ordered it medium, and it came out not even warm in the middle. We felt out of place in a mostly older crowd, and the servers were seemed to have lots of time for those who seemed to be regulars at the other tables while we had trouble getting their attention.

        Newtown is doing a pregame 3-course $33 menu and based on my visit on Friday (also a game night) you probably don't need to reserve. The food is well worth it.
