    Smile grammar mistakes

    If you find any mistakes, could you correct them for me?

    1. The spaghetti of "Mad for Garlic" is not expensive compared to that of other restaurants.

    2. The prices of the spaghetti are not over 10 $ so, I can enjoy it compfortably.??(which mean, without worrying about the money, i can enjoy the food) How do you native speakers express this thought?

    3.I can eat free garlic bread(which means they serv garlic bread free of charge. is that right expression?) and the spagetti is served in large quantity.

    Re: grammar mistakes

    I think the first question should be fine.
    The second one:"...are not over $10 so I can enjoy it comfortably."
    But wait and see how the native speakers would tell it!

    Re: grammar mistakes

    I think your first sentence is correct.
    the second, I do not know if "comfortable" is the right word. Here are some ideas.

    2. The prices of the spaghetti are not over $10,so I can eat good food with little money or

    The prices of the spaghetti are not over $10,so I can afford it.

    umm, about this one:
    3.I can eat free garlic bread (which means they serv garlic bread free of charge. is that right expression?) and the spagetti is served in large quantity.

    maybe: I get garlic bread for free...

    Let's see what the teachers say.
