Cola's Restaurant Review

: This reliable Italian restaurant in Chelsea has a small menu with gentle prices. The simple, fresh fare includes appetizers such as bruschetta, wild boar meatballs, and classic calamari fritti. Entrées range from pappardelle with wild mushroom to rigatoni Bolognese as well as a heart-healthy whole-wheat penne with asparagus, peas, tomato and fennel. While seemingly unremarkable from the outside, your palate will enjoy these perennial favorites.
