I could eat here every day..thoughtful, well-rounded menu, well-prepared food, great service (ask for Kelly), reasonable prices, pleasant atmosphere...the open kitchen adds to the warmth and coziness. It is on the Village Stroll, just on the West side of the footbridge and the gazebo (see the map).
They offer an ample variety of pastas and pizzas as well as wood-fired rotisserie chicken, lamb and pork; the entree list has a couple steaks, and some other fish and seafood. The braised lamb shank special sounded tempting, and the calamari (served la plancha) came highly recommended. I chose the mussels in tomato coulis from the appetizers, along with chicken/cannellini bean soup...either with a salad would have made a great meal!
We ate several places we won't go back, but this is exactly the kind of place we were looking for - I don't need foie gras prepared six different ways as one place advertised - just take good food and don't mess it up...I eat food because I like it and it sustains me not because I am making a fashion statement for crying out loud! And I don't need to pay $200+ to do it...so there! Go eat at Caramba! and tell them the crazy people from Seattle sent you.
