Foursquare Tips

  • The pasta that calls to you should be the pappardelle treated to a quilt of smoked bison bolognese and folds of pink speck. Fresh oregano and rosemary in the seasoning lighten the (carbo) load.
  • What a cozy and comfortable Italian spot right off the metro! So easy to get to, and it's more than a restaurant, it also has a small market and deli! It's a MUST VISIT destination!
  • Just tried their Italian sub for $ can get a phenomenally better Italian at Bub and Pops for the same if not less.
  • Portions are generous and ingredients are super fresh, but the menu is a tad confusing so be sure to ask questions before ordering.
  • The booths are really uncomfortable
  • Cozy and friendly neighborhood spot, good Italian food and pizza. House wines on tap are pretty good!
  • Winner of Bitches Who Brunch "Best Ambiance" award 2014!
  • Super attentive staff, great food, nice ambiance. Go for the ravioli! Divine and not too heavy. And if you ask nice, they'll do half-portions of pasta.
  • Good stuff..
  • Great spot to stop for a legit espresso.
  • Meatball sub!
  • Nice little market with goat cheese and restaurant in back. Good wine as well. Italian of course
