Good authentic Italian food. Heard about it on TripleD. Prices are reasonable. Very tiny. Go on an off hour. Maybe like 10 bar seats (byob) and 5 tables inside. 4 tables outside. Free on street parking. May need to walk a block. Parking up close...More

Compared with other fancy (or fancier) restaurants in the same are, this "tiny" pasta bar is non-pretentious and offers very good pasta in a reasonable price. The place is really just a bar with a couple of stools overlooking the cooking area, and there are...More
