This is the latest venture for the Crudo family—they of Cafe Amore, Black Pearl and Amore Pasta.  The restaurant is comfortable, the staff attractive, and the food what you might expect of this Italian well-recognized family of restaurateurs.  Also expected is the confusion being caused by the name which is unfortunately similar to the Spanish/Portuguese restaurant, Bodega, just one block over.
