Standards are high at this pleasant Italian place, fortunately open on Sunday. Service was very well-informed, relaxed and attentive. A risotto special was creamy, not overly cheesy, with butternut squash, perfectly cooked. The linguini con vongole was al dente, sauce not creamy, just perfect and very flavorful; we tend to be fussy about shellfish, and were not disappointed. Another special of a veal scallopini variant was excellent, and a lamb rotelli was also. An appetizer of bacala (salted cod) was not salty, with artichokes and potatoes--very tasty. Another appetizer, also described as a chef's specialty, of stuffed squid with vegetables was very fine. Our friends shared an excellent salad, avoiding the anchovy caesar due to food sensitivities. Corkage was less than usual in this area; we came with our wine-salesman friend, so we did not look closely, but the wine list is probably fine. Desserts--apple puff pastry, and creme brulee--were equally well done. This is the kind of food we ate in Bologna, and so we left very well pleased. 11/16/08.
