Yum. Il Violino, a few blocks north of lincoln center was the perfect spot to grab a great bite before the Opera. A small ceasar with capers(?) and not quite enough dressing was saved by a small plate of cheese and a plate of anchovies. The lamb was good but the Mashed Potatoes maybe a bit too smooth and my Pasta with shrimp and a brown butter sauce was greta. No dessert.. but next time.
The place was small and crowded and maybe better suited to a reservation if its shady on a spring day by the window in the sun rom. But i wouldn’t turn it down any day.
