  • Super old-school in every way, from the wood paneling to the tufted seats to the uniformed waiter with a thick Italian accent (who coincidentally was celebrating his 25th year as a waiter)
  • The meat sauce was clean tasting — not overloaded with a lot of fat and salt like I’m used to, a pleasant surprise. The tomato definitely took center stage in the sauce
  • They have a large space which is good for parties or a leisurely lunch
