Tartufo is a busy place, even on a Sunday night. The menu is varied and the wine list is pretty good at relatively reasonable prices. The food was fine for a neighborhood place, but the service was very slow.

Tartufo is a wonderful community restaurant. They don't try too hard but the food is nonetheless consistently excellent and the vibe is very pleasant. It's a great place to go on a chilly evening for a bit of nice company and warmth.
