SP started with an order of Fritto Misto - calamari, fennel, lemon, chilis and dipping sauce. Again, we were told the sauce had garlic in it, but this was SP's, so no need to worry.
He also ordered Crispy Pig Ear:
As for Grassa, we both enjoyed our meals a lot and definitely would go back. It was nice, after a long day of driving and being a tourist, to have a delicious meal in so casual and relaxing a setting, and to have people who really paid attention to my garlic allergy and who were so willing to be so accommodating - they were happy and concerned, not annoyed and surly. That's not always the case. After getting sick from the shallot a couple days earlier and not wanting any more tummy trouble, I was very happy.
Also - while they do serve alcohol, we ordered iced teas and it was definitely delicious, fresh brewed iced tea.
And, for salad, pasta, 2 iced teas, fritto misto, crispy pig ear, and tip, our meal was $40. Pretty darn reasonable.
