Relaxed and charming despite being an outpost of a popular chain, this family-friendly restaurant has an atmospheric setting in the former residence of Judge Jeffreys, a 17th-century hanging judge. Beamed ceilings, antique fireplaces, and swords on the wood paneled walls add character. The menu leans toward Italian classics like risottos, pastas, and pizzas, along with crab cakes and pollo siciliana (char-grilled chicken breast). The food doesn't always live up
to the setting, but service is fast and cheerful.
