RE: What do you order when you go out for Italian?
I loooove to start with Caesar salad, or perhaps antipasto salad.
As for entrees, I love veal, particularly Marsala, or Francaise (I think I spelled that right) - which is the one where they take the veal, lightly bread it and fry it and then put a lemon butter sauce over it.
But if I'm more in the mood for traditional Italian, I'll go with lasagna, or chicken or veal parmagiana.
I'm usually too full for dessert, but I love to end the meal with a nice coffee drink. Last time it was, I believe, Swiss coffee, which had creme de cocao and creme de menth. Ooohh, it was so good. I also like a nutty Irishman (and not just because I'm married to one).
