Thought I'd start a new thread for this since the comments on the St. James thread were removed. If you've been, tell us what you had and how it was, or have any questions about the place, post them here.

I'm looking forward to going, although I am disappointed by much of the menu. It would be nice to see something other than the same old, same old, which much of the menu is...does anyone know if they will have daily specials?

Just some info from people that have actually eaten at Castucci's .... the food is excellent, the owners and staff are very nice. We were fortunate to attend a pre-opening gathering on Tuesday evening with 30 ppl from St James Plantation .... per extensive discussion about it all were quite happy and impressed by the menu and the food .......on a purely personal note, their classic Fettucine Alfredo is superb as is the Carbonara along with the freshly filled Cannolis.

FYI: Last night, Wednesday, for the official opening night .... full house for two seatings ..... great Italian fare from New Jersey ..... thought is that you will need reservations soon for weekends .... worth a visit IMO.

Is the Fettucine Alfredo made with cream, or is it truly made the traditional way with only butter, parm and a little of the starch water from the pasta?

Very good ESN, my expertise is limited to chowing down on the stuff.

The waiter could offer the information, the menu in the restaurant could explain it, or one could ask. Not a silly question at all, really. And I'm asking it sincerely.

Well, to be perfectly honest, asking about the percentage of cream vs butter question did not occur to any of us.... however, more importantly, we did inquire as to what the cement mix was that they used on the front walkway.

We went opening night and the food was excellent! There were some problems with the wait for food, but considering it was opening night, everything went well.

CanalsLB, glad you had a nice experience.... did you perhaps receive a tutorial from the waitress as to what size knife the chef used in the kitchen while chopping the garlic prior to using an unknown percentage of cream in the dish ?
