Italian. Byob. Food is soooo good! Really cozy place. Plan on spending 20 bucks a plate, which is okay since you're bringing your own booze. Nice waitstaff.

I had heard about this place from a friend and was eager to try it out. It exceeded all expectations. A great atmosphere in a cozy warm spot under the El. Great friendly service and stunning food. We had the Calamari, which was as fresh as i have ever had, and a very flavorsome Funghi Provinciale. That was followed by a very tasty but not too spicy Ziti Arrabiata and a fantastically presented Tortelloni di Pollo. The bottle of '98 Caymus washed it down pretty well too! Recommend it to one and all.

Excellent neighborhood Italian place! Stuffed gnocchi in totmato cream sauce was fabulous! Tiramisu was also amazing. A little loud and crowded/cozy, but well worth it. BYOB.
