Lunch & Dinner Feasts

There are two rush hours at this red-checkered-tablecloth local chain. Around noontime, office workers get in line for good pizza by the slice ($1.95 and up), overstuffed subs ($5.99 to $7.99), including four kinds of parmigiana, and soups ($2 for a cup, $3.99 for a bowl)—look for the tomato tortellini or the Italian wedding soup, an occasional special.

Come early evening, harried parents stop in to pick up the likes of fusilli with sausage and peppers ($6.29), linguine with clams ($7.99), and gnocchi Sorrentina ($6.99) for a no-fuss dinner. Look to the arugula salad—gussied up with roasted peppers, pine nuts, and artichoke hearts ($5.99)—to cut the sometimes-oily richness of the main courses.
