Need a replacement for Il Corvo for lunch today

Local here. My mom is in town today, and I was going to step away from work and meet her at Il Corvo for lunch today. This was going to be a great choice because a) she absolutely loves pasta, b) it is walkable to columbia towers where I work, and c) I booked her on the underground walking tour and Il Corvo was convenient for her too. This ends up not being a great choice because he is on vacation this week and it is closed!!

Are there any other yummy, slightly special, not total touristy places that are semi-convenient downtown that can replace Il Corvo? I can have a car, though prefer walkable/bus. Your help is much appreciated!

      1. Rainshadow Meats or Little Uncle.

        1. You could stick to the pasta theme and same 'hood with Il Terrazzo Carmine. Pastas are $13-17 at lunch.

            Carmine is Way more special than me, mostly, but really a lovely idea for a special person.

          2. Thanks!!! All great suggestions - I appreciate them, as my mind was blanking. In thinking we either visit little uncle or il terrazzo carmine.

            Thanks again!

              Terazzo Carmine is white-linen Italian all the way, Little Uncle is underground, way informal and great and tasty value Vietnamese. You will be happy differently, but happy either way.

                Given the hour, I expect the decision has already been made.
