I live on the westside, and always try a new local restaurant twice. I went to Dat's Italian
with a friend, on Memorial Day weekend. I ordered a meatball sandwich. The bread was awful and the meatballs should have been cut in half - I ate the innards and left the bread. I almost didn't give the place a 2nd try, but I'm really glad I did. The next time, I had the lasagne and meat sauce and it was fabulous. I've been back again, and can't stay away from the lasagne, so it may be a while before I work my way further into the menu. The bread served with the lasagne are tasty, tasty little square rolls, sometimes white, sometimes multi-grain. Which, appears to mean that they're buying better bread now. The bread at a good Italian restaurant should be crusty and fight your teeth for the bite, and, well, be a memorable part of the meal. The staff has been very attentive and pleasant. Perhaps one of the previous commentators, above, went there when the place was newly opened and the kinks were still being worked out. It is a good, working-class neighborhood restaurant, with very good value for the money.
