Il Fornaio Restaurant, Reston

Lunch today was at Il Fornaio Restaurant in
Reston Town Centre.

It's a beautiful restaurant inside.

The juices are fresh squeezed and the bread -
Wow! Crusty on the outside, soft on the inside.
The most delicious bread I can remember
ever having. But then...

Unfortunately, the Vegan Minestrone was
pretty dull. I've had better at Olive Garden.

My salad of chopped Romaine, Radicchio, Tomato,
Cucumber, Cannelini Beans and Avocado tossed
with Balsamic Vinaigrette wasn't half as good
as the salad I got yesterday from Baja Fresh,
yet it cost twice as much. The Romaine was
surprisingly yellow and bitter.

Mr. SV's Capellini Al Pomodoro, however, was
delightful. Light w/just a touch of olive oil.
Il Fornaio -- go for the service, atmosphere
and bread.
