We have been going here since I was a child and it has always tasted good and been consistent. Go early or plan to wait. Very nice old building and fun to sit in the different seats or train car.

Our favorite place to eat in downtown Nashville. We always return here for a good meal and good service without paying too much! The menu is great and the staff is very friendly considering the heavy tourist traffic they have to endure.

If you are really hungry then this place might be for you. As the name indicates you get all kinds of pasta for a slight above average price. The taste was alright - about what you can expect. Although my ravioli were a little bit...More
