This is a place with a simple, low key appearance, yet with unbelievably good food and pasta. I have been in Italy and think this is just like an authentic trattoria, complete with terrific food at reasonable prices.

I only had one meal at Caffe Linda, lasagna bolonase. It was authentic allright, it tasted exactly like canned ravioli.

A wonderful and reasonably priced addition to the neighborhood. Caffe Linda has the freshest pasta around and wonderful homemade dishes. You feel like you're eating your grandmother's home cooking. It can be extremely noisy and the wait staff can get mixed up, but it's a great spot if you're looking for delicious Italian food at a good price.

Miss true Italian trattorias? This place will make you happy. I went with a friend, ordered 3 courses, split them all, had dessert after the 3 and was very satisfied. Qualitiy of ingredients was great and the preparation was 'molto Italiano vero' Bravo!
