Re: “Cucina della Ragazza squeezes a lot of flavor into a tiny Westport storefront

To each her own - I'll take the meatball, the beet salad, the beef tenderloin salad and any of the soups, any day. The fettucine with shrimp is not my favorite, either, but I'm betting the chef continues to tweak dishes. Here's hoping he whips up a crostini that pleases even food writers - and here's hoping more people comment on the thoughtful, affordable wine list, which is what draws me and mine to Ragazza again and again; that, and the graceful, fussy Italian who has created a warm, special atmosphere enhanced by her personal attention to her guests. Ragazza has good food, to be sure, but it's much more than the food. . .

Food Lover: I ordered shrimp fettucine and was served gummy pasta without sauce or capers and aromatic prawns.

Well that's odd. Wonder what you had?...

Thanks for capturing the essence of the Ragazza experience, however the Chicken Saltimbocca is my favorite and its a shame that yours was dry. Each time I've had it, the chicken was succulent with the juice of the prosciutto and spinach infusing each bite. And you didn't mention the crunchy garlic coated green beans!

Food Lover: I was not served the dish that you described as your favorite. And yes, it could have been an anomaly that night. But my dining companions had the same reaction to it that I did.

This was a sweet review that captures the atmosphere beautifully, but seriously? You found the fettuccine with shrimp was disappointing? Must have been an anomaly because THAT is my favorite dish on the dinner menu (we can talk Saturday brunch another time, where the Italian sausage gravy over eggs and a melee of potatoes is out of this world). What I love about the fettuccine is that it is not your typical, creamy rich mix, but a light butter/wine sauce with those yummy capers and a wonderful flavor. And SHRIMP is a total understatement as clearly these are PRAWNS! We'll have to agree to disagree on that (and the crostini too)!

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

If they show premier league games in the morning, with an English breakfast and pots of good tea...well, I'll have a new weekend hangout.

A group of us neighbors spent New Year's @ White Horse food was very good, Rum Chata's were plentiful, owner was a nice pleasant man, very approachable, nice change from the ordinary chains in our area, we will return!!

Re: “Rosso finds a brilliant new color for Italian

We stayed at the hotel after a Christmas party, everything was excellent. Enjoyed a great breakfast in the restaurant the next morning. I would recommend the hotel and restaurant to all.

Re: “Rosso finds a brilliant new color for Italian

We went to lunch on Saturday with my young sons and they enjoyed the view and seeing the rooftop pool! The veggie risotto is to die for and thought it was very sublime. Icing on the cake was valet was validated...next time it will be a date spot at night and the boys can stay home with a sitter!

Re: “Rosso finds a brilliant new color for Italian

I and everyone I know that has dined here have had terrible experiences with service, food, and now, apparently, even billing with charges appearing on their credit cards over a month after they dined there. Surprised the reviewer's experience was so different...perhaps they knew he was coming.

Cool place, good food, good service and the hotel has to be the nicest in the city too.

Re: “Rosso finds a brilliant new color for Italian

i've been there three times - once for dinner, once for lunch and once for drinks. Each time was great and i'd recommend it for sure, if not just to check out the rooftop view and have a couple of drinks. Can't wait to enjoy it when the weather gets nice.

Re: “Rosso finds a brilliant new color for Italian

Bunch of my neighbors have been here, said it was awful with "el garbagio" service. That means garbage in Italian...I think. Great article as always Charlie, you had me dying laughing the "entire" time, surprised you've only won 14 James Beard awards.

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

Be sure to ask a waitress if you can try one of their upside down tacos....they're amazing!

Re: “Taco Republic brings street-food chic closer to Main Street USA

I agree with everyone's sentiment that why would you go there with so many other outstanding options for legit tacos, but let them be. There is a significant population that will never venture down to KCK or Independence Avenue for a taco. If they want to pay a surcharge for a street taco, that is their own doing. I have taken being that live south of 435 to San Antonio and have them literally freak out that they were going to die or get food poisoning. You would complain if those places got saturated with JOCOs wanting an urban experience.
