Lunch and dinner, full bar, patio, live music nightly. Homemade Italian dishes "just like what you get at our house," says owner Tony Falleta. Specialties include veal and chicken marsala, baked eggplant stuffed with ricotta. Live music ranges from accordion to piano to blues and jazz, with customer sing-alongs not uncommon. In our opinion, the atmosphere is better than the food (sugary sweet red sauce, overdone veal), with the exception of the rolls, which are fantastic. But a lot of people love the place.
