Our primary reason for dining at Villa Tronco last Thursday was to enjoy the jazz-and-standards musical offerings of guitarist Jerry Sims, clarinetist/saxophonist Doug Graham and vocalist Kristi Hood.

Salad came with dinner and the lettuce was wilted. I guess they forgot to dry the lettuce. Worse Italian bread ever. ordered Seafood with linguine and it was decent. Wine was good. Overpriced for what they give you.
