Location: Little Italy

Distance: 5-10 min. walk

Atmosphere: Very decorative, almost comical or bizarre. There are beads hanging from the ceiling near the bar and some of the seating is on a bench with pillows. Dress can be casual or dressy, depending on the time. Afternoon is definitely casual.

General Impression: The food is decent, but the selection is not very large. The Gnocchi Pesto was quite good. This was a dish with dumplings which contained cheese and were covered in a pesto sauce and pine nuts. However, I must emphasize that there were only about 12 total items on the menu. The prices are reasonable but toward the higher end. On weekdays appetizers are half price during happy hour. This is particularly nice since the best appetizer is also the most expensive; that being the calamari. Overall, the restaurant is decent. One won't be disappointed with the quality of food, however if one is looking for large variety, look elsewhere.


Location: Tomlinson Hall

Distance: On campus

Atmosphere: Well, it is a subway. However, Tomlinson Hall is quite warm and inviting overall.

General Impression: I thought I would include this "restaurant" since it is one of the higher quality Subways that I have encountered. They serve what is to be expected from Subway. They do not have the $5 footlong deal, but they do make up for that since the sandwiches are better than most other Subways. Also, they seem to put more toppings and ingredients on the sandwiches themselves. Thus, a 6-inch sub here has probably the same amount of sandwich meat as the footlong at another Subway. They also take Case Cash and one can easily get a meal for $5.50. That is a better price than most places on campus unless of course one has a meal plan. Nonetheless it's still a good place to go for a lunch.
