Now That's A Spicy Ah Meatball

Last night we drove an hour north to Mt. Shasta accompanied by two friends to have an Italian dinner.  We must have really wanted that dinner because it rained cats and dogs on the drive up and the drive back.  Like rain came down in sheets making driving up in twilight not so bad but in pitch black 9 at night made it a bitch to drive even in the truck . .. poor visibility, stupid ass drivers driving too fast for conditions, semi trucks giving off dirt and spray that made passing them a feat of skill.

This looks like an old menu that was on the Internet.  Prices have changed a bit from then  but what was served has not.  Wifey and her girl friend each ordered a filet topped with mushrooms cooked with lots of oil and garlic.  I asked for fried chicken with ravioli.  The boy friend wanted spaghetti with meatballs. 

So that we could watch the Giants/Philly baseball game dinner was in the bar close to a big screen TV instead of the dining room.

Family style dining:

Large bowl of minestrone soup.  More than enough for four.

Large plate of salad.  Just enough for four.

Very large plate of antipasto (salami, olives, cheese...etc)

Huge basket of French bread.

There was so much food we had to be rolled out of the restaurant.

Decent food...a 7 on a scale of 1-10.  Great atmosphere.  Friendly.  Homey.  Many local families dining together.  We'll go back.  When it's not raining.

This is making me hungry. Italian food is one of my faves, but it does expand in your stomache after eating to much of it. Oh gawd bread........ooooooooh love it dipped in balsalmic and olive oil with crushed red peppers and parm.
