Great location for pre-theater, decent service and pricing, disappointing food. Despite mixed reviews, couldn't resist the convenient location. All three pasta mains -- homemade gnocchi alfredo, fettucini bolognese and the special fettucini with shrimp and garlic white sauce were overcooked, and the fettucine with shrimp VERY salty. Caesar salad nearly inedible due to strong anchovy flavor (usually a server will warn on this.) Perhaps the meat or poultry entrees are better, but when an Italian restaurant that prides itself on "home cooking" can't provide decent pasta dishes, then there's trouble. Server was pleasant and ambience utilitarian but acceptable. Tab for two salads, three pasta mains(modest sized servings), and a glass of house wine was $78. If you are going to the Academy of Music or Kimmel Center, want a quick convenient dinner and don't care about how it tastes, this is the place for you.
