Parking downtown Delray Beach can be a trick sometimes but not so much in the summertime, especially when you know the area well. We parked a block away so we had the opportunity to observe the other restaurants on our way in, it seemed like a slow Sunday on the Avenue. We sat outdoors on the east side of the building dining area; there was no wait to be seated. I always appreciate dining out of doors, as most of my work week is spent indoors.

As we sat, it was suddenly apparent that our table was lopsided and teetering back and forth. It was then James our server arrived in perfect time to move our location to a more suitable table. He poured us waters, took our beverage order (a Peroni Beer and Raspberry Quince Tea) and told us about the special of the night which sounded tempting. I like when servers state the price of the special after they describe it.

James returned with our beverages and he took our orders, I got the baked clam appetizer and stuffed chicken francese. I also requested a small side salad to accompany my dinner which wasn’t on the menu not however unreasonable, James said he would do what he could

Now a little time to enjoy Italian beer, ambience and the end of the Dolphin’s game out of the corner of my eye. James was attentive during every phase of our dining experience, as was the rest of the team whom delivered our appetizers. The thinly shave garlic slices on top of the baked clams were amazing, we joked about the roasted garlic that we had burned just the day before.

The Dolphin game ended just as our dinners arrived and it’s a good thing. There is no doubt that stuffed chicken francese is one of my favorite meals. I love anything stuffed with spinach deliciousness. The portion was larger than I remembered, and the risotto it was stacked on was a sweet change from the roasted potatoes I had been accustomed to. For dessert we had espresso and zeppoles, a great presentation and end to a beautiful meal. Thanks to James for checking my ID as requested on the signature panel of my AMEX card. NY City style meets South Florida al fresco dining with this authentic Italian cuisine, it suits a special occasion, Sunday supper, or casual happy hour, yum!

There is valet parking at the front door for $10.00, which we used. We entered the restaurant at 6pm and were quickly greeted at the entrance and seated immediately having made reservations. The waitress came immediately to take our drink orders. They brought focaccia bread which had butter, garlic and cheese; very good but never have we eaten focaccia with butter. We ask them if they would serve the focaccia plain with olive oil on the side. The olive oil was delicious; we soaked the bread in it and topped it with a little salt and pepper. They brought our wines with a generous pour. The appetizers were very good, especially the smoked octopus. A little less breading in my Oregenatta trio would be desired, but the flavor was good. The old school meatball was the size of a baseball. A little dry on the inside; the taste reminded me of a stuffed pepper. It was served in a little pot with a handle (great presentation). Our meal was risotto with lobster. The risotto and lobster were over cooked, with a consistency of oatmeal. Our friends shared their linguine pasta with us which was very good. The train came by one time at 7:30pm during the 3 hour visit. It was an interesting experience; the building shook like it was dancing. With the party atmosphere, the train added to the experience. I would expect more for the money when it came to value, with the entrée.

My very lucky husband was able to snag a spot on the street right in front of the restaurant, so the night was off to a good start! We met my parents inside the restaurant and were impressed by how pretty and fun it looked. The bar had a wall open to the outside. The restaurant had a very trendy Italian vibe to it. We loved the brick walls, wood floors and high tufted leather backed booths. Our waitress was very sweet and responsive. After she brought us out our sodas, we were disappointed to learn that they were just small bottles to fill our glasses with and there we no free refills. We ordered our appetizers: the old school kobe meatball and the misticanza salad. The meatball was very large, juicy and flavorful. We spoon jousted for the last bites. The salad was equally delicious. I kept sneaking candied walnuts from my husband's side of the salad over to mine. For dinner, I had the stuffed chicken francese with garlic spinach and sweet pea risotto. Peas are my favorite vegetable, so I wished that the risotto had more of a pea flavor to them, but it was very good and perfectly cooked so I can't complain. The chicken was juicy and extra cheesy. The lemon garlic jus was a highlight of the dish for me. It was a generous portion of food and also quite heavy, so I ended up taking half of it home. I also had a few slices of my husband's originale pizza and it was very good as well. The pizza was so big that my mother couldn't help but exclaim that fact out loud when she saw it! The mozzarella on it tasted very fresh and high quality. Throughout our whole meal, the busboys kept our table clear and clean, even going as far as wiping down the table for us after we had spilled some sauces. One of my favorite parts of the night was when the train went by. We were not prepared for it at all! It was very loud and shook the whole restaurant! We all thought that it was great fun and really enjoyed the surprise. For dessert we all split tiramisu and venetian vanilla cake. The tiramisu was creamy and filled with coffee flavor. The venetian vanilla cake was interesting with vanilla custard layers and "frosted" with toasted meringue. All in all, we thought the food was very good, but not worth it for the price. Personally, we would rather go to a less trendy area and have more reasonably priced food that tastes just as good. However, if you want to be downtown and don't mind paying for it, the food here is very good and you should check it out.
