Behle Street - as good as I remember?

Behle Street in Covington is the first restaurant I went to in the city. It was when I was considering a move to the Queen City and one of my then-boss' favorite stops. Thus, it holds a special place in my heart. Now that I work on the OH side of the river I don't get there too often but found the time to get back...

The pasta dish I chose came with a dinner salad. It was fine - the bread was the best part and the honey mustard was a little spicy which was nice. I'd love to see them take this salad to a higher level - I can get this salad in a diner - give me something a little extra.

I got my standard - the Capellini Meatloaf ($9.75) - it's your standard "spaghetti & meatballs" but with angel hair and chunks of meatloaf instead of meatballs. It was good - the sauce is very tomato-y - not cooked for hours and hours like a dark sauce would be. I have to say - yes I enjoyed it - but not as much as I had in the past. The meatloaf chunks were a bit flavorless and overcooked. I think I expect more than I used to in terms of flavor. But not an overall disappointment by any means.

My friend got a wrap - I think it was a gyro wrap - it was their daily special. She ate it but mostly with knife and fork - it was pretty big and not sure how you could have picked that up. It didn't look like anything too special that I would order again.

Why Should You Go? If you're in Covington looking for a little nicer place - this is the spot. Especially in the nice weather - the patio is wonderful. Not sure it's worth a special trip from too far away - but like I said - if you're in the area and want something nicer than Skyline - it's a good stop.
