This cozy spot done up in the colors of the Italian flag has been attracting fans of Neopolitan cooking for almost forty years. The crowds of yuppies, dotcommers, and well-heeled retirees return again and again for the spicy Linguine with Clam Sauce, authentic Sicilian-style pizzas with wafer-thin crusts, and the warm, friendly service that has been the rule here from day one.
