Fantastic Italian. You'll probably see John Hamm here - he has his own booth. Monday night set dinner is a steal. Weekend brunch is great.

I think it's the best theater in the city. There's an attached cafe, they have real butter on the popcorn, art deco design, and they've knocked out every other row so you can stretch out.
