Clearly the business minds behind this Italian concept have figured out a formula for success: approachable, Northern Italian cooking for the masses, with suburban outposts seemingly opening weekly. At this location, loyalists from the neighborhood dig in to huge oval platters of cool, caper-studded carpaccio; pastas tossed with lemony cream and asparagus; capable fish and chicken sautés; and what’s surprisingly the best garlic spinach in town. Couples and families happily wait at the bar drinking tumblers of cheap wine, somehow oblivious to the chaos of the always-packed room and the obligatory wait even for those with a reservation.

I love the hand written menus that change on a regular basis. Service is always accommodating and amazing. Nice option in an otherwise very casual neighborhood!
Wow! Consistently excellent food ... always! And the back area beyond the courtyard is the best place to dine.
