Ever wondered what it would be like to dine inside Restoration Hardware? Wonder no more. Don't get me wrong--I like it, but found it a bit odd and caught myself looking for price tags and mule chests. We went early on Saturday night. The ceaser salad, chicken parmasean and mushroom pasta were garden-variety--about what I'd make at home for myself, but I would do better if I were cooking for company. Our meals came with seven fat slices of bread--1 with the salads, 2 more with the entree, and 1 on the kid's plate. Seven. Who eats that much bread? The chianti was thin. Very nice staff. Kid-friendly--and kids eat free on Sundays. Itwas busy but not overly crowded. Overall, D'Amico's has a casual approach to both food and atmosphere--no substitute for a full-throttle Italian dining experience.
Pros: casual atmosphere, staff
Cons: average fare
