Wow, I'm surprised by the above review, but I guess everyone has a bad day. I'm doing the rounds of the restaurants in my neighborhood, and so far Village Tart and Torrisi are the two winners thus far. Aside from the food, Village Tart has the advantage of seating and a cozy vibe. You could really spend all day there. I've had the ham and mozzarella baguette at lunch...easily one of the best sandwiches in a long time. Their meatloaf sandwich is also excellent. For dinner, the bar area is really cute, and I've been addicted to the frisee caesar - great caesar dressing, and real anchovies. Salads in general are superb, and the halibut is solid. People seem to come here a lot for dessert, and the cannoli is really special (baked). Service could use a little improvement, but food and decor really outweigh that. It's a comfortable place with comfortable food.

My friend and I went for brunch. I had the egg white souffle frittata, which was the size of a postage stamp and came out lukewarm and really chewy. My friend had the baked eggs which came out soggy and barely even warm. The potatoes weren't cooked, and had no flavor. On top of it all, the service was very slow, and not attentive.
