Al Di La Blah Blah...Great

squid pasta and squid and their friends from the sea

Market Salad


Beet and ricotta filled ravioli in butter sauce
This is a well respected restaurant in Park Slope on 5th Ave and sort of old news...except that we ate there last night for Maureen's birthday and it was so terrific that I want to be sure as many people as possible know about this gem. No reservations but don't let that deter you; worth your wait in gold.

There is a professional,warm and clever vibe here...and our waiter's sense of humor couldn't have been better aimed. He saw Jeanne's broken foot boot and as he served each item he asserted in a new way each time that "this is very good for a bad leg." He said, looking at the boot, " That was me ain 1977" and obviously remembered the importance of keeping spirits up. Al Di La? You know
...yes I know you know..but when was the last time you tasted their farro sald with mint or their squid pasta with mista pesce something? Tables are close together but its ok here to huddle and hunker down to Bonnie Doone Albarino and Primativo and crusty bread and some people you like to be with (with whom you like to be).
