Wednesday - Out to dinner at Santasiero's

So, M and I have been wanting to try some of Buffalo's red sauce Italian restaurants for a long time. There's a lot of buzz about Santasiero's and so it seemed a good start. The place is an institution - same menu for 88 years, cash only, plastic tablecloths, and notes to customers on the walls. We were expecting a treat. It turned out that we weren't particularly thrilled. The soup and salad were both good, but everything else was only so so. The famous red sauce was pretty flavorless and the ravioli were obviously frozen (and overcooked to boot). Michael's eggplant parmesan was fine, but only fine. Lucky for us, Buffalo has a LOT of red sauce Italian options. I'm sure we'll find a favorite soon.
