We go to MA's every time we're at HHI; last week we went twice. There are lots of other good choices, some with outdoor seating, but we haven't found one as great as this.
A comment about the Italian style: Certainly, the menu has an Italian focus, but the variety, presentation, and the flavor-full preparation of the regular menu selections and the multiple-course daily specials transcend the limits of the Italian peninsula's standard fare. Then there's the service: Make a reservation and the greeting you'll receive is like a homecoming welcome. The serving staff are prompt to appear for drink orders, wait staff are well versed in the menu's choices and provide detailed descriptions of each course's uniquely prepared daily offerings. Actual service is typically very prompt and that's true even when every table in view is occupied. Everything we've ordered every time we've been there has been top quality, so don't hesitate to pick something you like the sound of but have never tried.
Our favorite waiter is Josh, but in fairness we've never asked for or had another; my observation is every one I've seen is remarkably efficient and personable. A final thought: the wine list is outstanding, but we enjoy sampling the three 1/3-glass flights of different choices that are well-matched and come with individual descriptions.
