What to get at Locanda Verde?

I've been invited to a dinner for 7 at Locanda Verde.
Any suggestions as to what order or what to avoid?

    We've been there twice, brunch and dinner, and it's not a restaurant that I'd rush back to unless it's on someone else's expense. However, and for what it's worth, the pumpkin ravioli dish is the surest thing that I'd order if I happen to be back. It's very good.

      Has anyone tried the porchetta? I'm an addict, though it would be more economical to get it from Porchetta.

        i was just there on saturday night with my family. we ate a ton..everything was great. here are my faves....lamb meatball sliders, ricotta app, blue crab crostini, pumpkin pasta dish was amazing, calamari pesto pasta dish very tasty, scallops, halibut, and you can't go wrong with any of the desserts.

          My favorites at Locanda Verde are the pastas (if they have the gnocchi on the menu- get it) and the fish

            Yes, great pastas. The pumpkin agnolotti is delicious.
