This is a family old-reliable. There’s an upstairs and downstairs. The Blogger prefers the downstairs. The Critic and the Brewer prefer the upstairs. The others are not committed. Pastas tend to be over sauced and portions are too big, but that’s the American way. (On this visit we had a clear view of the station where the servers would either pack-up left over food or throw it in the garbage. The amounts were staggering.) Let’s start a new food movement, shall we — we’ll call it No More Leftovers. Humans should not be served piles of food that they can’t possibly eat. Still. We return. Really good stuffed artichokes.
Cuisine and style of dining: Italian-American and twinkly lights year round.
