Restaurant

“Best Fine, Authentic Italian in a casual setting. Easy for lunch. You’ll need reservations for weekend dinner and it will be tight and noisy. I order White Bean & Arugula Salad w/grilled squid & any pasta. Entrees served family style for large groups. Speakeasy style entry-it’s the door and intimidating stairway to the left of “Hibachi Box”. You’ll think you’re wrong-you’re not. Sister restaurants Dinamo & Mama Zu’s are also excellent. ”
