Our Favorites

Insalata Romana – Roman Salad *
Organic arugula, endive, radicchio, figs, gorgonzola, cashews, with a honey-caesar vinaigrette.

Rigatoni alla Buttera ( we found a half portion to be filling)
Rigatoni pasta with pork sausage, onion, mushrooms and pink sauce

Ravioli – Authentic homemade regional ravioli stuffed with a sweet filling of amaretti, raisins, citron and parmesan cheese,
served in a sage-brown butter sauce.

Linguine all’Adriatico *
Linguine, tomatoes, garlic, basil and shrimp in a white wine sauce.

Puttanesca (capers, olives, anchovies, marinara); or Carbonara * (eggs, pancetta).

Pesto (basil, olive oil, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan; or vegan).

*This Café does not serve beer or wine yet, but the $3 corkage fee makes up for that!
