    Almost anything is good here. Pasta and sandwiches in particular. Great value for big portions, more like 1.5-2 meals

    It was alright.......there is no service and no wine or beer. Very rude but pasta was ok.

    Large portion. The Chix Marsala is unique but not radical. Slight creaminess, acid, and fresh herbs elevates this dish to Best Of status. This is comfort food...

    Their baked stuffed eggplant is awesome, even for those of the meat-eating persuasion.
