good food for lite italian – This is pretty much the only light Italian restaurant in the city and it is really good! You can tell when you eat the food that it is made with less oils and cholesterol-laden ingredients, but that is not a bad thing because it is good. You don't walk out feeling blotted and regretful. Great place to grab a casual dinner, meet up with a long lost friend, or share a bottle of wine with a long time lover. Recommend the grilled calamari, black ink squid pasta dish, garlic bread with cheese (warning: a lot of garlic!), and pesto pizza!
Great Food – Favia offers really good Italian food at reasonable prices. If you are in the mood for a pizza but want to avoid the fat and calories (or at least cut down), Favia makes a delicious "lite" version. Definitely worth trying.
great neighborhood joint – No complaints here - Favia is consistently reliable with great thin slice pizzas and a variety of pasta and italian- style meat dishes. Very casual, you can come in after shopping at Bloomies for a light, easy meal. And it's all low-fat (or so they say!!!)
8 – GREAT RESTAURANT. WONDERFUL FOOD. THEY HAVE AN EXCELLENT LUNCH MENU. THE OUTDOOR SEATING IS WONDERFUL ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON, ESPECIALLY IN THE SUMMER. PERFECT IF YOU ARE SHOPPING AT BLOOMIE'S GREAT ITALIAN RESTAURANT AND THE PRICES ARE REASONABLE. THE WAITERS ARE REALLY UNDERSTANDING AND HELPFUL.
