I was there on a Wednesday night so maybe that is the answer. This BYO, moderately priced Italian, probably is on a weekend. The food was just enough different from the usual to make it more exciting without being nuts. The service was good (though the runner did not know who got what). My only caveats are that some of the tables are tight and, be aware, you need cash. In spite of those gripes, it's a great neighborhood place.
