You wouldn't expect to find such great, inexpensive Italian food downtown. I have been here a number of times and am always happy with the service and the food. It isn't exceptional food, but it is very good for the price. The restaurant also has an open kitchen, which makes for some nice viewing pleasure. As of the past few years, they are open during the weekends (at least at night) as well. Definitely worth a try--especially for a downtown lunch.
