    Bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy the local cuisine that's unique. You may have the owner, Mitch, stop by and ask how you're liking everything. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu!

    Small menu; not many traditional Italian dishes offered. The staff is accommodating and will create something special for you if you ask!

    The spot next door has a nice ambiance up front. In the back its a bit like they left their pants down.

    Try the veal bolognese with pappardelle and bring your favorite bottle of vino from home to turn this dish into an occasion! Read more

    By virtue of being neighbors with the city's best Italian market, Cafe Urbano is one of the best places to BYOB in town.

    Forgot to BYO? Run down to Jimmy's Food Store before 7:30 and grab a nice Chianti. Or two.

    Great food, great service. But bring earplugs. I don't know why people feel the need to shout when sitting at a small table. This was the loudest restaurant I've ever been in.

    Urbano offers inspired and fresh nightly chalkboard specials with locally sourced ingredients in a tiny, cozy setting. The BYOB policy makes it an affordable weeknight choice. [Eater 38 Member]

    BYOB. And you may want to bring your own cooling apparatus if you need it to stay cold. Great food.

    A sweet ambience that is full of life and laughter yet accommodating for any dinner conversation. A destination spot for any local.

    Scallops and pumpkin raviolis are my favorite. Be sure to ask Evan to be your waitor. He's the best!
