La Scaletta Restaurant Review

: The nearby train station is so dreary that you might be tempted to hop a freight and leave town. Resist that temptation and head instead to this alluring little restaurant for some of Italy's most exciting and creative cooking. Pina Bellini has prepared such adventurous dishes as spaghetti with black olives and caramelized tomatoes, calf's foot in a velvety onion cream, and saffron ice cream with wild berries.
