  1. Just discovered it tonight, actually. Great place. Very good food and service. I had the antipasto and crabcakes.

    1. Every time I've been, I've ended up ordering the buccatini all'amatriciana, because it was so good the first time. And once, last summer, eating alone at the end of a kind of grim day, I asked for an arugula salad with lemon juice, olive oil, and parmigianno--not on the menu--and they made it cheerfully, which many similarly contemporary Italian places wouldn't do. So I like the place, though my experience with the menu is not wide-ranging.

      1. I was there two weeks ago with a party of 14 on a Saturday night celebrating my wife's brother's father-in-law's 90th birthday. The back room is big and spacious, although a bit noisy in that there is a high ceiling. The service was good, friendly and unhurried. The food was good in that everyone seemed happy with their dishes. I do not think that anyone raved over their dishes but the menu is straight forward and not particularly ambitious. I had the short ribs which were good, but I have yet to have any that I would rave over (other than Korean short ribs which are "cured" with sugar). I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
