But this one is close to a 5 ! I ordered take-out from here twice on a recent business trip and both were very good to excellent. I tried the half & half the first night with a meatball (great meatballs !). Sauce and pasta were fabulous, but the Ravioli was just ok.
The second night I had the chicken parmesan - and it was the best I've ever had ! Best, period. The spaghetti was obviously home-made as you can't buy it this thick.
Both nights I had the Minestrone soup which was obviously homemade and delicious - strong and hearty. Gave me bread for dipping and a sopped up every drop.
I also tried the Tiramisu, which I was told was homemade - didn't believe them as most restaurants buy it from Sysco foods or the like. In this case I think it was made onsite as it was unique and excellent. Very, very good.
Atmosphere is great if you like old-school in an old neighborhood, which I do. This place has tons of character, and the staff seemed friendly and competent. The gent who took my order was great (Steve) and tends a mean bar. Sharp guy - a real pro. Good prices on all items - $12 first night, $18 the second.
