Surprise! Walk through the revolving door and you're greeted not so much by the host as by the bevy of waiters picking up food from the kitchen. Get your bearings, turn left and-a-ha! There's the restaurant!
Painted walls set the Italian country vineyard scene, where a comfortably crowded room of people are served heaping quantities of pasta from waitresses negotiating each others' serving trays in the narrow aisles. The whole place has a relaxed rustic atmosphere to it and a hearty red sauce to match.
The pasta is as you'll expect (on the menu, you are encouraged to match your preferred pasta and sauce, because who knows your tastes better than you, right?), and I'm waiting to hear a complaint about the fish... and I'm waiting... and waiting...A surprising neighborhood treat.
Average cost: $10-$20
