06 Masi Nuova Strada vs Entry Level Bikes

So today me and a buddy went to scout some good entry level bikes for me to purchase.

I entered into one lbs, and the owner advised that this bike is pretty good for what my intentions are in riding:

-lose weight/get in shape
-try to commute daily to work
-lose some more weight

He quoted this bike @ $850 and my question to any of you that can help is:

-Am I really getting a deal on this bike for it's components/specs

-Is this a bike that will be somewhat of a comfortable ride for 5 mile commute each way
-What other descent bikes would you recommend at a price range not exceeding over $1000.
