I took a walk downtown, had a couple drinks, got hungry and had to stop by. The arugala and sliced steak dish was great. The arugala was so fresh. The waitress was very friendly and offered effortlessly simple answers to all questions on the menu. Food served surprisingly quick. The place is small so its not great for a big group. If it starts getting packed (a handful of people could pack the place) you won't get a seat. I only wish they would stay open later to satisfy my hunger after a night of drinking.

how nice to find a place like this. unpretentious but cool without seeming to try to hard. its a hard act to pull off but they do it well here. sandwiches are interesting and tasty without being too trendy. the specials looked pretty good too. come with a date though and not a party as quarters are cosy!

After reading great reviews of this place on menupages I went there last night for dinner. A huge mistake. First of all, the place is TINY, which means that maybe it could pass as a coffeeshop or even a sandwich place but obviously they do not have the capability to actually cook food in a kitchen that is literally about 4' x 4'. After telling the waitress we needed "a minute" and being left alone for at least ten minutes (with no one else in the place) I finally flagged her down. We ordered the bruschetta with carmelized onions and fontina which was nothing to write home about (the cheese wasn't even totally melted). The real problems began with the entree however -- I ordered the special, gnocci with pesto. I knew it was a bad sign when the 'chef' appeared to be putting something in a microwave (!?!) and indeed, when my gnocci arrived it tasted like something out of the trader joe's frozen section. They hadn't even bothered to make the pesto, which must have been frozen or out of a jar. Perhaps this place works for sandwiches (I won't be going back to find out) but for dinner, you're better off microwaving your own at home.

so happy this place came to the neighborhood! we order delivery at least once a week. it's fresh, well put together, and thoughtfully packaged. buyer beware: the crispy bread chips that come with their salads will make you want to cheat on that south beach diet you just started.

this restaurant is the best in the area. there is something for everyone from the freshest salads-many options, to soup, to sandwiches, to amazing takes on bruschetta. you never leave feeling like a cow, because the ingredients are so fresh. just like the other reviewer, i could eat off the floor. great cappuccino too! we order delivery too and it's always fresh and packaged nicely. huge salads.

I was highly impressed with this restaurant. Besides the food being outstanding, and the dessert being the best I've had in the city, it is so very clean! I would have been comfortable eating off the floor! Bruschetteria is a must for an intimate date, or simply an afternoon of studying and eating yummy food.

Tried this place a couple weeks ago and I'm already hooked. Great alternative to other typical sandwich shops in the neighborhood. Try the prosciutto and mozzarella panino.
