Any must-haves or dishes to avoid? (First time there)

    They do a great antipasto platter that really captures the spirit of light-handed Southern Italian cooking.

    The cassava root gnocchi probably best epitomize the subtle Peruvian-Italian fusion idea.

      I'm a personal fan of both the Grilled Trout & Salmon dishes, as well as the Pan-Roasted Mussels appetizer. Both times I've tried pasta dishes, I've found them too salty (for my personal taste.)

        I also love their double pork chop.

          Cassava gnocchi, hands down. One of my favorite dishes in Boston.
