Sometimes You Just Need a Little Tonno

It was one of those nights recently……I just needed a little Tonno. I always feel a little spoiled when I am there and the food and drinks are very satisfying. AND, that night, it was like Old Home Days. We saw several friends including Nichole Schrafft and her crew as well as Kerry McKenna! Shawn served us with efficiency and friendliness. Tonno and staff is appropriately attentive to COVID protocols and we felt very secure. Jim enjoyed his Caesar Salad while I had garlic bread with prosciutto (YUMMM). We had Chicken Milanese and Veal Milanese along with cocktail specials pomegranate margarita and red sangria. It was just what I needed. Thanks, Tonno!
