Avondale is getting built up fast, and this casual Italian gem makes a great addition to the neighborhood. It's a small space, so reservations help, though the very small bar area is first-come-first-serve. The food is family style, in the best way possible, meaning the portions are enormous and actually big enough to allow sharing -- no small plates here! The husband and I split a pizza and pasta, and both were delicious. The orchiette pasta with italian sausage, pesto, marinara, broccolini, and spinach was just what I needed on a frigidly cold spring day. The dirty martini didn't hurt either. This restaurant is great for family, friends, or date night.
