Mezza Luna

We returned here recently after more than two years, and it seems to have gotten even better. Last time I remember having The Chip…so good (pasta in a smoky chipotle cream sauce) that it made that much of a lasting impression. This time I opted for the pasta primavera and the vegetables were just crisp enough and the pasta had this foreign delicious sauce on it (butter, ha!) Chris went for his standard choice, eggplant parmesan. He enjoyed it, too (I think he might have wanted more cheese), and although I have a hard time with Italian restaurants that serve mashed potatoes, these were garlicky and nasty (good nasty) and delicious. Nasty, too, was the appetizer bread (although we came this close to ordering the calamari) and the side salad was pretty decent, expect for the typical Indiana tomatoes.

All in all, I’m glad we went back. It was warm and toasty (the fire was going), dark and romantic, and my Cosmopolitan gave me that fuzzy feeling that makes me want to play footsie under the table. Nice dinner.
