A date night tonight, and we chose The Poor Italian.
We made reservations, we like to dine early so we made reservations for 5:30pm. Althought quiet then, by 6pm, it was packed. So I suggest reservatons.
We had a lovely relaxed evening. The service was excellent. Very attentive.
We started with the Antipasto, wow it was so much food, with fresh smoked Salmon, olives, beans, eggplant etc, all you can wish for in an Antipasto.
I had the Rack of Lamb, which came with roasted veg. I must admit the veg left a bit to be desired, but the lamb was amazing, a very good serving, full of flavour. I just loved it. One of the best things I have eaten in while.
SL had one of the specials, basically spagetti and meatballs, but that name does not do it justice. The sauce had such depth, the meatballs, had a hint of heat that played off the sauce. She loved it!
We decided to have dessert too, I had the Dark Chocolate Terrine, which was a chocolate lovers delight.
SL had the Tiramisu, and it was so light and fluffy, she said it melted in your mouth.
This place was packed, so I do suggest a reservation, but I could see the wait staff working so hard to seat everyone, and judge when people will move on.
Although a bit pricey for my normal dining, we would go back in a heart beat.
