    When the simple pasta (butter & herbs) is good enough to write about, you know everything else is really good, though pizza has come out too charred. Great atmosphere, music and service.

    AVOID THE COCKTAILS MENU: It may look nice, but the quality sucks. The vodka cocktail is made with crushed ice (really??) and the rye is totally weak. Lame. Lame. Lame.
