Aria Restaurant Review

: Aria hits the right note for a romantic evening characterized by good wine and well-rendered Italian fare in a cozy candlelit atmosphere. Twinkling lights along the entranceway mark this little restaurant with a rustic interior, wooden furnishings, communal tables and long white tile bar. A considerable range of appetizers, from cheese bread to lamb chops, might inspire diners to order several plates while exploring wine flights of whites and reds from the Old and New Worlds. Pasta dishes are very affordable and stick to the classics, and they're well prepared. Tagliatelle with sausage tossed in garlic and olive oil as well as creamy gnocchi are among the possibilities. Desserts include rich ricotta cheesecake and delicate blueberry panna cotta.
