Via Marcello Revisited

Via Marcello Restaurant Revisited

1790, Cote-Vertu

St-Laurent QC+

I have been there on two previous occasions so it was an easy decision to return there this evening. There was a close call on arrival because the weather outside has been windy and raining for what seems to be forever, and the restaurant was uncomfortably air conditioned. However when we complained without hesitation the hostess proceeded to turn off the cold air. The meal and the service were impeccable.

Shirley chose the Caesars Salad ($9) and Eggplant Parmesan ($12) while I ordered from the Table D’hote menu Cream of Spinach soup and for my main course, Manicotti alla Florentine, pasta stuffed with spinach, ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella gratinĂ©, with coffee ($18).  I had a hard time choosing the Cream of Spinach soup over the always great Minestrone, so I asked the server to surprise me. And speaking of the server, kudos to Dovina who not only was at the top of her game, but also able to tolerate my sense of humour.

We will return.
