A space like this 50 years ago might have been used for a dark little corner bar. The menu here is short and sweet . . . the portions are too: European style. The place is BYOB, but that's not a problem, with a fine liquor store about a block away.
The place is so tiny, there's no storage space. So, everything is made to order, just for you! People sit on stools, like at any other bar. It's intimate without being furtive – so it's a perfect first date place.
Start with a little salad; they make their own dressings. For your pasta, choose a shape and a complimentary sauce. They range from slow simmered meat sauces, seafood, creamy and even vegan options.
For dessert, the made on the premises tiramisu is highly recommended.

Italian: "Get there early in the evening to be assured of a seat."
Best for Italian Because: It's such a simple concept: pick a pasta and a sauce. But they get it perfect every time!
