Modestly hail the conquering hero with an overabundance of pasta.. The Scene This family-style Italian restaurant is anonymously located in the Veteran's of Foreign Affairs' one-story, stucco meeting hall for Tabor-Franchi Post 2396. You'll find more patriotic signage inside, as nostalgic recruitment posters, tarnished honorary plaques and platter-sized military seals bedeck the paneled walls. A dry erase board with today's specials clearly coincides with the hall's sometime conversion to a trattoria.
The Food Dr. Atkins would shudder if he saw these starch-heavy dishes laid down on paper placemats and plastic tablecloths. But a thick, well-seasoned marinara sauce enhancingly covers standard parmigianas--veal, eggplant, etc.--piled high with ziti, linguine, cavatelli or spaghetti, though sometimes short on meat. If the simply prepared francaise and marsala dishes leave your palette craving more stimulation, order a side of hot peppers. You'll have to make the most of your main course as you won't find much afterwards. Desserts are limited to ice cream, bon bons and nut rolls
