What a great place. I'd wondered about it forever and someone mentioned it here not long ago. Old school Italian, 50's looking place. One room has a good sized bar with about 8 booths then the main dining room. Wine comes in those tiny little glasses but you'd be shocked if it was served in nice stemware. Bread was better than at most Italian places. Sweet older waitress who asked us if we wanted more "gravy". Two of us got veal parm., one had chicken and eggplant parm. and one had lasagna w/ meat sauce. All excellent, the frying for the parm dishes was excellent altho the sauce on those was on the sweet side. Meat sauce for the lasagna was great tho. Side salads for $1.99 were large and more interesting than you'd expect (i.e. iceberg w/ unripe tomatoes). A side of broccoli w/ garlic for $2.99 was delicious. Ricotta cheesecake was decent but I was picturing ricotta pie. With a bottle of red and a glass of white, it came to $107 before tax and tip. They have a huge lunch menu too, definitely requires a return trip.

Had to be in Watertown earlier so stopped in at the Danish Pastry House for the first time in a while. They still refuse to label or price their items but going there at 6:15 got me an extra pastry since they were nearing closing time. At least last nite when the tall Danish man was working. Only had a bit of the almond croissant to not spoil my Tony's dinner and it was quite good. Also got some twisty thing with apricot I think, who knows I get sick of asking them what everything is. But a good deal for $1.75 for the two of them.
