The smallish interior in an old stone building is pleasant enough, but the spacious enclosed patio overlooking the street is much livelier. A popular haunt for twenty- and thirtysomethings (and also popular with families), this restaurant has the feel of a neighborhood brasserie. There are many toppings (don't miss the black-olive spread), and some tasty starters (try the fried mushrooms stuffed with goat's cheese or the fried calamari). The chicken livers stir-fried with
apples, shallots, and nuts are delicious. There are great sandwich options, like sirloin strips, and several salads and pasta dishes. It's worth making a reservation on weekends, when it's packed with regulars.
