dining2 I love
coming to this Italian restaurant. The appetizers and desserts are to die
for. When the waiter came to our table to take our order, my friend
ordered a lobster ravioli dish, and I asked for my favorite, lasagna. The
waiter then asked us, "Would you like a soup or salad with
that?" My friend said yes; I passed on both.
The vibe in the restaurant is pretty laid back,
not at all uptight like you find in some of the ritzier
restaurants in Beverly Hills.
The wait staff is courteous, although sometimes the hostesses can be a bit snooty
Anyway, when our meals arrived, everything was cooked to
perfection. Since I didn't order any appetizers, soup, or salad, I was starved.
Even though I was really hungry, I tried not to gobble down my food too
quickly. I didn't want my friend to think I was a pig! But even though I
tried not to, I still overate. When the waiter asked if we wanted any
dessert or after dinner drinks, I just couldn't resist getting the apple-filled
crepes. They are the best.
When we got our check, my friend and I split
the bill, as we're accustomed to do. I frankly prefer to go Dutch when I
eat out with friends. So that was the end of a really great meal. Now I have to
hit the gym if I'm going to lose any of this extra weight I gained from eating
