Italian: In the mood for a cozy little Italian place with good food and the sort of quirkiness that can often be the hallmark of family-owned places? Then brave Woodruff Road and search out this tucked-away eatery, set in a strip mall. Meals are leisurely, and they're as convenient for a family as for date night. If the menu doesn't offer something you've been craving, ask if they'll make it for you. They're usually happy to accommodate and are always intent on pleasing diners. Again, a perk of independent places.
