Located in an old gas station on a state road, it was reminiscent of Mama Mia. It offered the same comforting, well-made classics like eggplant parmesan, cheese pizza, linguine with clam sauce. The calamari was crisp and light. That vanishing species, the bread basket, made an appearance. That other vanishing species, the carafe (and half-carafe) of wine were unexpectedly good quality.
It was really, really good. Good, in a 1974 way that still held up in 2010.
