Invita Bistro Time has served this restaurant well. In just a few short years, its reputation— and fantastic Italian and Mediterranean cuisine—has garnered a growing list of culinary fans. It is small in size but very big on everything that matters in a restaurant: excellent food, service, and ambience. Salads come in two sizes, chica or grande; the small portion is sufficient for two, especially if followed by a tasting of the variety of dishes such as a soufflé de primavera made with veggies, béchamel, and Parmesan, or perhaps the restaurant’s signature dish: eggplant parmigiana.
