This place opened back in 2005 and was quickly the hot spot in the South End. One of the few daring establishments that braved the gentrification of Washington. Great Italian inspired food but not overly done… dare I say, al dente? Very cool atmosphere with a blend of patrons, mostly South Enders during the week. Great bar to eat alone and make friends! Love the staff for sure… VERY gay friendly. Affordable prices and plenty of parking in the area!
