  1. Last visit (this summer), we had a preparation of the nudi and pork saltimbocca that we enjoyed( served with different accompaniments than listed above). Torta della nonna was great for dessert, as were the gelati.

    1. re: Lucia

      Duh--forgot about the calamari--definitely agreement w/the assessments below.

    2. For antipasti, definitely the calamari fritti. The best in town. They used to have beef carparcio which was also very good, but with the current list I will go with the calamari fritti.

      For primi, I second the nudi. Their pappardelle and garganelli are always great regardless of what sauce they put in, so those are the safe bets.

      For secondi, haven't tried any of these, but I tend to like their fish and pork dishes better.

      I love all desserts, so I can't help here....:P

      1. We went a few weeks ago, and the menu has changed a lot even since then.

        For anitpasti, the calamari fritti is a must. It was amazing. For primi, we had the tortellini and the garagnelli. I thought both were just ok. The tortellini was marginally better than the garagnelli.

        For secondi, I had the pork saltimboca; it was a slightly different preparation but I liked it very much. Dolci, we had the panini, which was delicious, and lemon gelato/sorbetto dessert (maybe the sgroppino?) which I would also recommend.
