Farmicia has been around for awhile and it’s not anything special, but you can always come here for a reliably decent meal. Their food is all stuff you’ve seen before - meatballs, seared salmon, roasted potatoes - but they have a good selection for vegetarians, and it’s an easy place to appease picky eaters. They also have a great Happy Hour (all drinks are half off), and it’s in a super convenient location in Old City, so you’ll probably end up here at least a few times for drinks and snacks with a coworker.
