Felix, that looks like fun!
Brad, my brother did the ordering after we chose our dish.
He did order gargantuan which was a salad bowl size of pasta.
I'm not a fan of family style dining (trough) but this seemed to work out well. There were ten of us and 4 gargantuan bowls of pasta were ordered along with two large salads. There was still food left in all of the bowls when we were finished.
My choice was quite delicious. Large minced clams (not out of a can) as well as clams in their shell. The others ordered Spaghetti Bolognese, Fettuccine Alfredo and the penne pasta of the day which was also seafood with an Arabiata sauce.
All were very good.
The problem of the night was the parking. This restaurant is located at the beach where parking is difficult on a good day. If you could find a meter you'd pay $2 for an hour. Of course they're not to be found.
Reservations were for 6:00PM. My brother and his brood got there early and chose the restaurant valet parking. He saw me driving up at five minutes to six and called me to tell me to just use the beach parking which was the same price and a larger lot. It took me ten minutes to drive the maybe fifty feet to the parking.
I paid $6 to park which took another fifteen minutes of finding an empty space.
When we finally arrived at the restaurant my brother said... can you believe they're getting $15 to park?
WHAT? I said that I only paid $6.
After he checked it out it kind of ruined his dining experience. Seems that before 6PM the parking is $15 and after it's $6.
Next time we eat at 6:15PM!
