          we went to trattoria cinecitta for dinner - Decarie corner Isabella. Nice restaurant, with parking in the rear.
          on a sunday evening, about 5 tables occupied. Apparently new owners.
          My parents (in their 80s), my wife and me, and my daughter.
          Lasagna, sea bass, liver lyonnaise, osso bucco, tortellini soup. service was good, food was tasty, and good size portions. Had also a saxophone player playing background music, which was nice.

            It is also extremely close to Snowdon métro, if for a group where some are driving and others taking public transport.
