AAA Inspector Notes
First recommended by a regular who also happens to be a long-time AAA member, this small casual eatery may lack noteworthy décor but more than makes up for it with outstanding food and service. On a chilly day, diners might start with the hearty, soul-satisfying minestrone soup—a meal in itself. Hot panini sandwiches (consider the tasty sliced pork with broccoli rabe and fresh mozzarella), the veal, brick-oven pizza or pasta dishes are all top notch. As close to Little Italy as it gets.
