A great place to visit. Walk down the street and breath in the smells of home cooking. Casual Dining, Fine Dining, Gelato shop, Home made fresh Pasta shop, Mona Lisa Italian Groceria is incredible. If you want a real tast of Italy don't miss it.

Great restaurants and bars. In the weekend there is a market which is nice. Go for a walk, cruise the neighborhood and have something to eat.
