Gypsy’s Trattoria Italiana is a counter service spot near Cal where you can get you a lot of Italian food for cheap. The calzones are the size of your head and one pasta can easily be split between two people. And, for the amount of food you’re getting, the food is pretty good. There will most likely be a line, and it can be tough to get a table, so maybe avoid coming with a big group unless you want to sit in the communal area outside.
