More on Tiburzi's Cafe.

Posted 3/5/2008

Why We Go: Tiburzi's delivers very good renditions of Italian classics in huge portions at reasonable prices, and the upstairs dining room has been dressed up pleasantly.

What We Eat: Anything involving marinara sauce, that benchmark of old-school Italian restaurants, is excellent here, especially with the fra diavolo modification. The chicken saltimbocca is a standout--the alarmingly large chicken breast is nonetheless properly cooked, and well balanced by real prosciutto and a rich sage cream sauce.

What We'd Change: The Caesar salad. We expect a solid salad before our pasta, but here it's straight-up cafeteria style.
