The Old Spaghetti Factory (again)

 A few days ago, Tom asked if we might go to The Old Spaghetti Factory on Saturday. We both love the place, though I have only been there once. We got there just after noon and the place was already quite busy. That's always a testament to the food.

 It doesn't take long for the salads to arrive. The OSF offers a "three course" meal and salads are one of the offerings.

 Tom ordered Misithra Cheese and Brown Butter, which they call "a toothsome treat for cheese lovers. Legend has that Homer lived on it while composing the Iliad". I don't know about that but I suppose Tom could make it a while on this.

 I almost always opt for something plain ... spaghetti with marinara. It's a lower calorie option and I can be sure its vegetarian.

 Along with the salads came a small loaf of yeasty bread and softened butter.

 And for dessert, spumoni ice cream.

 As we left I took this shot of Tom and I sitting on a brick bench outside the restaurant. It was cold out yesterday ... the high at Pinehaven was just 18° so it was no time to linger. Our trip to the OSF was part of our day-early celebration of Valentine's Day

 And before we left Tom's apartment, I took this shot of us sitting on the interior steps.

 Always a good time in Cincinnati but even better with the romantic holiday just ahead...
