The Best Restaurant ever. A small place--a dozen tables--run by two immigrants and their daughter. Far superior to anything you'd ever find in your run-of-the-ill Italian place in this country, and most of Italy for that matter. Make a reservation before arriving, usually accepted until 20:00.
There are several house wines on the menu, or you can choose from a selection of bottled wines. The initial reaction to seeing the price for the house wines was shock at the price, but then there's the realization that it's because you usually don't see wine ever offered by the litre (or half-litre) in the U.S.. Most of the house wines are imported from Italy. We took Julianna's advice and got a litre of the chianti which was an excellent accompaniment.
OK, this is working pretty well. Time to upgrade for no reason.
