    I was supposed to go tonight but a sick child has made for a change of plans. Sigh.
    Ditto the carbonara and tartuffo. If they still have the butternut squash and mascarpone tortellini, by all means order it .
    Enjoy dinner for me.

      Cacio e pepe and the gnocchi

        Carbonara is my go to dish, gargenelli with tripe is up there as well.

          You MUST get the tartufo for dessert! Look around and pretty much every table has at least one... it's insanely, insanely good. Enjoy!

            I always get the carbonara and bucatini, opening with prosciutto and closing with the tartufo. Yum.

              bucatini is a go-to for me every time. gnocchi are pretty fantastic, too.
              people never seem too psyched for the saltimbocca...

                agreed - gnocchi are excellent. saltimbocca is not their best dish.

                The vegetable anitpasti, escarole salad, cacio pepe, carbonara, and desserts are great. I haven't tried the salumi or secondi.
