Chef Vola's Restaurant Review

: It looks like a clapboard house in an old neighborhood, complete with a Madonna statue in the sideyard. But it’s actually a restaurant that’s been in business since 1921. The fiction is that you have to know somebody to get in, and with its long list of regulars, you’d almost believe that's true. If you manage to gain entry, expect to be packed in like a sardine. Portions are large and generally Italian-American favorites, such as veal Parmigiana and pasta with any sauce. Ricotta pie is a satisfying dessert. You can arrange for wine to be delivered from a nearby liquor store. Service is efficient if a bit theatrical.
