What's not to be missed, aside form the carbonara?

  1. I heart the spaghetti & meatballs. The grilled shrimp salad is fantastic.

    1. Spaghetti and meatballs, if it's on the specials menu. I usually end up ordering the pappardelle w/mushroom ragu. It's a special, but it's been on the menu every time I've gone. Bone marrow is great. Stuffed zucchini flowers are good. Some of the antipasti are good. I've had less success with the salads/meat plates.

      1. Whole roasted fish is terrific. I had the risotto balls as a starter and they were very good. I've heard that the polenta side dish is amazing but haven't had that yet.

        1. The pork shank I had there last time was excellent, very tender and flavorful with pears and zucchini I think.

          1. Absolutely the bone marrow.

            1. The zucchini flowers are excellent when they have them, the sausage stuffed sage leaves are all right, but the Prosciutto, Creamy Polenta & Smoked Mozzarella dish is incredible. Don't miss it. I also enjoyed the Orecchiette.
