Agrodolce Restaurant Review

: Even if you fear that the suburbs don’t need one more Italian restaurant, you’d have to agree that Agrodolce is a welcome alternative to the pizza routine. Not only has the owner put both thought and creativity into the décor and design, he’s also smartened up the menu to capture the gastronomes in the crowd. Sure, you’ll find le pizze, but these pies bear such names as calabrese with Italian sausages and stewed peppers, or rocket with a garlic-crusted base topped with arugula on a white pizza. Antipasti and salads, pastas and risottos all benefit from the same touch of ingenuity. Chicken, seafood and meat entrées --- and even duck risotto at dinner --- make a compelling argument to eat here, and often. A happy hour menu features small appetizers easy to pair with your favorite wine.
