Di Manno Ristorante, Thornhill - Food worth the skyhigh pricing?!

Whilst trying out Fulton's burger in Thornhill this evening ( Burger good, better than Heroes, but nothing spectacular ), I noticed a brand new Italian restaurant directly across the street from it. Out of curiosity I went in to take a look at the menu. I was stunned to see appertizers in the $18+ range whilst entrees were way up in the $40+ range. The lambchops were priced at $48! Thats, Canoe, N44, Splendido pricing!! Have any fellow chowhounders happened to have given it a try? Does the food worth the price?
Di Manno Ristorante,
11 Disera Drive #100,
Executive chef - Vincenzo Delfo. Heard of him?
Tried out Di Manno's on Saturday night for a family birthday dinner. Food and service were great. Portions are hearty - so definitely worth the price. We ordered the Calamari appetizer - light and crispy with no oily residue - accompanied by a lovely spicy aioli. My brother and father shared the Fiorentina which was the special that night - it's a 28oz Porterhouse steak done on the grill. It was cooked perfectly. Mom had the Orada - lovely light white fish and I had the gnocchi - they were cooked properly and the sauce did not overpower. Desserts are to die for. We will be going back!

I've been meaning to try, it's really busy at night when I pass by between 10pm-midnight on the weekends with Ferraris and Lambos parked at the front, but with those prices, I'll pass until I get more good reviews.
