Lunch prices vary from $8.95 for three-cheese ravioli to $14.95 for whole belly fried clams. We both had a yen for the penne dishes ($9.95), so Johnnie chose the sautéed chicken medallions with artichokes. It was quite successful with its tasty pink vodka sauce. Wanting heftier protein, I went for the sausage with broccoli rabe. The hot Italian sausage wasn't overly so and the addition of cannelloni beans wasn't too much starch for the dish, so I was smiling too.

As for desserts, there are nine, all $6.95, many of them homemade, and you may get an espresso or cappuccino with one for only $2. The lemon mousse tempted, as did the cinnamon bread pudding with maple-bourbon sauce. What sounded like it would hit the spot, and did, was the melon granita: honeydew and cantaloupe Italian ices, topped with fresh berries. Delicious.
