Four of us went to this place for dinner a few Fridays ago. It was horribly noisy in the dining room and it took over an hour to be served. I had salmon with an extremely sweet sauce that did not compliment the fish and my wife had some chicken pasta dish with a blah tomato sauce. Basically this is a glorified pasta joint with highly excessive prices. Avoid it!
Wine country friends of ours told us about this adorable restaurant they found on a trip to the mountains last fall. We had a chance to experience it this winter while visiting our daughter's school. What a treat! Don't miss the baked peasant bread with crushed garlic, herbs and olive oil. I ordered a spicy sausage & shrimp pasta dish with the chef's own tomato sauce and it was to die for! My husband had beer battered oysters to start, then a perfectly cooked tenderloin filet with roasted potatoes with garlic & rosemary. This place is proof that local mom & pop restaurants (Chef Ricardo is the owner with his wife) can sometimes turn out the most creative cuisine. Bravo Lomo Grill - and in the middle of the smoky mountains!
