My very good friend Leslie was the recipent of a very good gift certificate to Oliveto's, an Oakland, CA, restaurant well-known for its high standards and devotion to things authentically Italian.
Our meal, service and wine were wonderful. I wanted to write it up, but hadn't found the time when a local newspaper beat me to the punch. Read Nicholas Boer's review of Oliveto's here. Please try not to drool on your keyboard.
And Leslie, thanks for sharing your gift certificate with me!
