At this casual neighborhood spot, North Asheville residents enjoy unpretentious northern Italian cuisine. The entrées, nearly all under $20, include veal piccata with garlic mashed potatoes, twice-baked lasagna, and pizza. The bonus here is the friendly and well-trained staff. Even the cooks in the open kitchen wave and smile at you. Although reservations aren't accepted, you can call just before you arrive and get your name on the list.
