Bona Fides Restaurant Review

: This under-the-radar Italian eatery charms with its traditional style and garden seating (when weather permits). Best of all---all your Italian favorites are inexpensive and just what the doctor ordered when you're craving a hearty bowl of pasta and some tranquility. Comfort is fried calamari, sweet lobster ravioli, and a nice vino while the crooners serenade in the background.
