Epistrophy is a comfortable and relaxed restaurant that serves delicious, authentic Italian food. Only problem is that every time I leave there, I am never really full! Maybe the portions are not robust enough--I am not sure what it is. BUT it is definitely a place worth trying, ideal for lunch. I love the bresaola and avocado salad and the lasagna is a must. For brunch try the uove al sugo - fried eggs in tomato sauce (be adventurous, it's really good). For dessert, I would highly recommend the Stacciatella ice cream with a shot of espresso (pour the shot on top of the ice cream and you will be in heaven).

all the food and wine i've had is good. panini tend to be smallish, but the salads are big and more than i can eat. very pleasant atmosphere and sweet owners. i am skeptical of the review left by the former employee.

The main courses weren't that tasty. Came back here a handful of times in search of a standout entree, and didn't find one. Not too much of a loss though, since their appetizers are delicious (and priced right) and the atmosphere is great. I like coming here for a glass or two and something to nosh on, but wouldn't recommend coming here for a hearty dinner.

Best place to go after work and relax, and the best things you can also eat!!
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
