I live right up the hill from Boccali's - probably 3 miles and before tonight I have never dined at their restaurant. Sure, I have gotten pizza to go but never been an actual diner. Tonight, was the night and wandered inside with Cowboy Ron. We sat ourselves down and ordered our drinks. I was ready to dive into some Italian goodness.
An Antipasto Salad serves 3-4 people so we shared that. I went after the tomatoes, cheese and basil and topped it on the fresh bread they served - an bruschetta of sorts.
I have never had Eggplant Parmesan so I decided that is what I would have. It came out molten hot and the waiter almost tossed it in my lap upon serving. He slipped and I panicked but all ended well. That could have ended really ugly. I dunked pieces of bread into the boiling cheese until it cooled enough for to me to enjoy. I have to say that it was only ok. Nothing worth ordering again and again.
Do you like raviolis? Well Scott enjoyed them. They looked good enough.
All in all I was shocked at how much this simple food ended up costing. They have a pumpkin patch, haunted house, vegetables for sale and wine that they have made - they do a lot and get a ton of business. I just don't understand. I drive by the restaurant everyday and see the crowds - I am amazed at the following. They must be doing something right! FYI: Cash only, such a bummer.
