for valentines day dinner with Mrs.
we started off and stayed with a very fizzy prosecco.
for starters we had tuna tartare (very good) and bruschetta (ok).
for primi platter we had seafood pasta (very, very good) and pesto pasta (ok).
for secondi platter we had salmon filet (ok) and duck breast (tough as a mediocre piece of beef, and tasted beef-y, if you see how I mean) . . .
we like Osteria de Clara, and the staff is unfailingly sweet & polite, but since it is so small and so hard to get into (need a reservation), we expect it to be perfect when we get there . . . and it just isn't . . .
