Fodor's Review

Only the name remains at this neighborhood standby recently transformed under new ownership into a country Italian eatery that feels like you've stopped by a friend's house. Nearby farms provide the bulk of the ingredients for the delightfully select list of simple, yet sublime appetizers, homemade pastas, and mains. Look around the 34-seat room with gray wainscoting and marscapone-color walls brightened with colorful tiles, and you'll see yogis, young couples, and happy seniors munching on specialties like mushroom- and cauliflower-stuffed arancini (rice balls), linguine with little necks, and spice-rubbed steak. At lunch salads, pastas, and warm stuffed sandwiches dominate the menu, while brunch brings equally comforting options, including plenty of egg dishes, doughnuts, and cinnamon rolls.
