This a tiny neighborhood Italian spot, and the menu is surprisingly large for how tiny the space is. They have paninis, salads, chicken, and salmon - but you can skip all of that and just get some pasta. Order off the menu or just pick a pasta and sauce, then get a piece of focaccia to mop up the remains, and you’ll be very well-prepared for a nap.
