    Gluten free pasta. Great wine specifics

    The price definitely does not meet the quality for the food. The wine was pricier and excellent. One and done for me at this place though. Low on my list for the neighborhood.

    Really delicious pastas (summer ravioli is bomb) and half off bottles of wine over $60 on Sundays and Mondays! Hello, two bottle Mondays. 🍷

    Dinner is great but try brunch too. When there for brunch get the egg yolk ravioli. No matter when you go the pastas are fresh and handmade.

    They have an entire category of "brunch pasta," which we didn't know was a thing, but are so happy it exists. Read more

    Looking for amazing homemade pasta, and don't want to spend a lot? Then this is your place! Order the Malloreddus Bolognese. Added bonus: your gluten-free friends can still enjoy the pasta too.

    The pasta is great here, and they run a "how to make your own pasta" class every Sunday afternoon (and I think you eat the pasta afterwards - sounds great!)

    Really small portions if you're hungry, so keep that in mind when ordering. Also not shy about letting you know they are ready to end their shift.

    The Lamb Orichette will not even make you feel bad for our old pal Lamb Chop. You had me at truffle oil, not hello. Make sure you ask for a second helping of bread (otherwise you won't get one).

    recommend the meatballs and the hanger steak or try the lamb orecchiette if you want to catch the fresh made pasta. They took great care of us on a friday night

    It's nearly impossible to get a C health rating: your restaurant has to be filthy. But these guys managed to do it... and hide the rating behind a picture. Food was good, but kinda gross nonetheless.

    The fried shrimp and calamari appetizer is awesome. As an entree, the saffron infused gnocchetti with a veal, beef and pork tomato ragú is the way to go. And, for dessert, do *not* miss the tiramisu.

    A great list overall. Two very nice white wines from tasty low production Piedmontese grapes: erbaluce & arneis (Ferrando and Vietti are great producers, resp.). Can't go wrong with either. Salute!
