From Kliman Online's "Word of Mouth"

The second outpost of Olazzo (not a chain, a local chain -- there's a difference) looks, from the inside, like one of those restaurants in lower Manhattan -- a long and narrow slip of a place with tables crammed together and the long bar at arm's length. It's not as interesting on the plate as the mood might lead you to believe, but there are some tasty simple eats on the streamlined menu (good fried calamari, a tasty square of lasagna that tastes like somebody's grandma's), and Monday is half-price bottle of wine night.
