The intimate eatery tucked away next to Cottonwood Books on Perkins Road is now under the care of Diane Baringer, who serves up the same Old World recipes for Italian, German and Turkish favorites that were first created by the restaurant’s original owners: the immigrant Bubola family, who arrived in the United States in the 1950s.
The atmosphere is dark and casual and evocative of a longstanding European tavern or wine bar, but the cuisine is upscale. Veal Parmigiana, Spaghetti and Meatballs—with a red sauce that takes three days to make—and Cannelloni are featured along with less-familiar fare like Musaca Potatoes, Schnitzel Holstein and Panzerotti.
This romantic, dimly lit European bistro has been a local favorite since 1962. Serving German, Italian, Turkish and Armenian dishes.
