  1. The roast pork dish.

    1. i've only been a couple times, but the rabbit was yummy when i went

      1. The spicy octopus appetizer. I've also heard good things about the lamb with polenta.

        1. Octopus in purgatory, bocconcini (mozzarella wrapped in speck), gnocchi with mushrooms, suckling pig.

            Gotta ask - what is "octopus in purgatory"?

            1. re: Pan

              It's served in a spicy tomato sauce.

                Fra diavolo, by another name.

          2. The wood-fired oven pizzas are excellent.

              Agree. Especially the plain Margherita.
