The interior of this outlet of a national chain is a flamboyant exercise in stereotyping, right down to the red-checked tablecloths. Adding to the atmosphere are hundreds of humorous photographs the owner has picked up on trips to Italy. The restaurant is usually a loud, high-energy place with large groups of diners. Entrees start at $13.95, and portions are huge -- one order of chicken cacciatore ($24.95) serves up to five people, pizzas are measured in feet, not inches, and meatballs weigh a half-pound each. Even the smaller portions of pasta (starting at $8.95) serve up to 3 people.
