Went for a walk on the waterfront and had dinner at CI’s. The carbonara was so good, and the views can’t be beat. Service was great even with all the Prom couples there.

The food was excellent and we ate fresh dungeon crab and rib eye steak. The wine selection was great and we had a bottle of Browne Cab and Leonetti Cab and both were outstanding.
