Erminia Restaurant Review

: Nothing has changed here in 20 years --- and that's a good thing. That applies to the seriously romantic mood: a candlelit room with a dozen tables, exposed brick walls and a wood fire and the menu. The excellent pastas are mostly house-made and there are veal, chicken and numerous seafood options: swordfish, red snapper, salmon, striped bass and lobster either grilled or dressed with a spicy marinara sauce. Various skewers --- meat, poultry and shellfish --- are carefully mesquite-grilled. For dessert, consider the luscious Black Forest cake.
