This place can be a headache when BC is in session and students are crowding the place. On a summer afternoon, this is one of the best places to eat. The food is always pretty good, and the portions are huge (and some dishes are really good -- they do excellent sandwiches and decent pastas and salads). One thing that's great is that they have the outdoor terrace for al fresco dining when weather permits. Of course there's the sports bar crowd at the bar. The prices are very moderate, especially considering the generous portions. The tables are comfortable, and the service is generally quite good. The iced tea is pretty good. They used to always have coupons in those collegiate coupon books, but those don't seem to be as popular these days as they used to be. Cityside is especially good at lunch time, which it's not too noisy.
