Classic. Definitely a favorite of locals since 1988, this spot is famous for its hospitality, especially from the patriarch of the family. Minestrone and chicken noodle soups fly out the door at lunch. For those with more time, have a seat and enjoy the atmosphere. With loads of options—from yummy spicy meatballs, baked deep-dish concoctions, pizza, pasta, spanakopita and roast lamb to grilled BC salmon and steak—there is something for everyone. Breakfast is amazing, too. Cozy up in the original section, with a bright and casual Mediterranean color theme, or request a seat in the more stylish Cassandra's wine room.
