Party of 2. Haven't been in a very long while. What's the best time to go to avoid a wait on Monday night these days? Do you think we will be ok if we get there right at 6? Any advice welcome. TIA

    I try to always be the first on line. It is the only sure way. You must beat out the other chowhounds.

    Consider the risotto nero!

        At 6 you'll have no problems. You'd probably be golden until 6:45.

        If you feel like having a drink before dinner Moutarde, across the street, is a pleasant spot. Give your cell number to the hostess at Al Di La and ask her to call you when the place is filling up. They're very conscientious about making those calls and within minutes you can finish your drinks and still get a table.

          Great!, thanks for all that info. Perhaps I'll report back. Going all out... anniversary dinner!
