When I fantasize about pasta, it’s definitely their house made tagliatelle, dressed simply with butter, parm + shaved truffles. It’s not on the regular menu, but was a special that night…anything with truffles is going to get to the top of the list with me! Also delicious: spaghetti served with braised lentils, roasted tomatoes and spinach. If gluten is your nemesis, you can order any of their pasta dishes with gluten free penne.

To start, get a round of antipasti to share. Recommended:

Spanish grilled octopus (a must!)
Sautéed Tuscan kale with cannellini beans and Burrata cheese finished with a caramelized Balsamic reduction
Cesare salad

They have meat and fish courses, of course, but I tend to enjoy antipasti and pasta at Italian restaurants. I just don’t have room for more than that.

I love the atmosphere and the service is attentive and friendly. It gets busy, so make a reservation.  They have terrace seating, but I prefer the inside.
