My sis and I love love love pasta - love it! So we decided to grab a bite to eat and wanted Italian - it's not as easy as you'd think to find pasta places in Cincinnati. You can't throw a chopstick without hitting a Thai place - but Italian - not so much.
We did come across The Spinning Fork on Rt 4 in Fairfield - we'd driven by many times and decided this would be as good a time as any to give it a try.
She recommended the manicotti ($6.95) and said she added the extra shredded cheese on top for me. This is not extra cheese. It was fine - but to me ricotta isn't cheese like I was wanting - I wanted thick mozz. I was hoping there was a lot on top - but there wasn't. The marina sauce they use is very red and not cooked very long. It was fine - but about as bland as can be. I want to be able to taste the oregano and the garlic!
Sis got the lasagna ($6.95) - basically looks like the same plate without the shred on top. She said it was fine as well but nothing exciting.
Why Should You Go? We'd both have rather had Maggianos or Olive Garden. I think we're going to have to suck it up and try some of the more expensive local Italian places - like Germano's or Barresi's. The prices are very affordable though and it's not bad - it's just bland.
