BYO and enjoy dinner for two for $50 or $60 including tip. Fresh salads, an inviting outdoor area attentively prepared Italian classics make for a very enjoyable experience. The cozy, somewhat chopped up, dining areas inside keep noise to a minimum. The chef/owner makes it a point to visit diners and ask for comments. This is a great addition to dining choices in the area.

Went with a group of 8. Several of us ordered appetizers (calamari, mussels in a white sauce, and pork and figs), which everyone enjoyed. I ordered the Sunday Gravy as an entrée that was served with penne pasta. It was very tasty. The restaurant offered several specials for the night.

I ordered the tiramisu for dessert and the presentation was nice. The crème brulee, tiramisu and ricotta pie are made in house. The other 3 desserts are brought in (per the waiter).

The night we were there the restaurant was having trouble with the air conditioning. When we asked for the ceiling fan to be turned on, they were unable to turn it on. They lowered the thermostat on the AC but it was stuffy.

The restaurant is BYOB.

Went to Mafalda's on A Saturday night, there were 8 of us, made our reservation well in advance and requested a special waiter that was recommended to us......They said yes, no problem but alas, when we arrived.....he was not working that night, and never does on Saturdays :-(
We trudged along, ordering appetizers and dinners, which were all tasty (have the pork and figs!!!) My companion went wild and told the chef to make him something he liked, we had no idea what would be served, it was not the bologna sandwich that we joked about but beautiful veal chops. Sunday gravy was probably the best, chicken parm was average.
Desserts were ok, the tiramisu was beautifully presented!
Small and cozy, nice for special occasions, the staff was friendly, the a/c was spotty for a warm night.

The food is very good and I would highly recommend. The Sunday gravy was very good. Tried the special crab raviolis that were awesome.
