Italian Restaurant
$$
“This is our closest neighborhood restaurant, an Italian place just a scenic 10-minute walk away. They serve large portions and have a large menu--not always good qualities in a restaurant. But they do it with panache, with super warm waiters, white linen tablecloths and a taper in a silver candlestick on every table. Try their housemade pasta.”
