A Great Place.
Mr Z's is a wonderful, calm restaurant downtown. I love the bruschetta and the tiramisu is pretty good. Maybe I just love Mr Z's so much because that is where I went on my first date with my boyfriend almost two years ago.
Mr Z's makes a great date because you can eat dinner, then catch a flick. Close to Capitol Theatre too.
Came here after watching "Amelie" one evening and it was just the right exclamation point to a great, whimsical film. Again and again, I believe Mr. Z's strengths lie in the specials. I have had a variety of their ravioli specials and they never diappoint. Robust, flavorful sauces, and chewy subtle pasta shells... it's all good! Some of their main entrees come up a bit short (Pomodoro, Lasagne Bolognese, Conchiglie dish) on authentic taste but the one noteworthy-- Penne Con Salsiccia is a can't lose. Bread and salads are fresh, but the wine list is a bit bare. Opt for an Italian beer.
