Atmosphere here is extremely interesting. Wait staff is also very interesting. Food is always very good--especially the fresh pasta with pesto and the lasagna. Sensation salad and bread is good, also.

I LOVE this place. It is in a dark and dingy corner of a location, but don't judge it from the outside (or the inside!) It is delightfully tacky with a small wait staff but it is extraordinarily delicious! The 3-day red sauce is to...More
