Stopped in for lunch with a family member and baby. There were at least three other mothers with babies there. A very cozy and pleasant environment with room for everyone. We shared the soprano Panini and a caesar salad and they were both delicious. And very filling - big sandwich! We didn't have enough room for gelato - regretting that now :) Friendly staff, nice place, I recommend if in the area.

The best gelato around is at Massa, and they're always making new flavors which keeps us coming back for more. Of course they have the staples, like chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, nocciola (hazelnut), pistachio, and several others. I normally get the nocciola, but always get at least one other flavor as well, whether it's a mixed berry, tiramisu, or another of my favorites, the speculoos. The artisan pizzas are Neapolitan-style (very thin crust), and my favorite is the white pizza with the mushroom medley. The paninis are quite nice as well, and you can have a half sandwich with either soup or salad. Polenta fries are offered with the paninis as an upcharge, and if you have someone to share them with, do it - they're super yummy, but quite filling.There are several pasta dishes as well, but no matter what you have, always, always save room for gelato! Or go in just for the gelato!

Love this place. Very neighborhood type of feel.
The food is delicious. My personal favorite is the chicken caesar salad and the cavatelli with vodka sauce.
The gelato is SO good. They've even won awards for it!
I always get a mix of two different ones.
The coconut is pure heaven.. mmmmm
