The name is bad, but the food is great at this cozy Brookly Heights restaurant that serves excellent Italian fare. The seared octopus in a stewy tomato broth is the way to start any meal here. Then move on to one of the many pasta or meat dishes. Locals especially rave about the osso buco served with goat-cheese polenta. It gets crowded, but that means it's noisy enough that you can bring the kids.
