Mama Carolla's Old Italian Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Arrive early on the weekends for less of a wait, or order a glass of wine and enjoy the feel of Italy while awaiting a table on the vine-covered patio or in one of the intimate dining rooms of this lovely old home. Actually, dinner feels as if it is being served in a friend's home, with everyone treated like a treasured guest. Sicilian-style asparagus patties can whet the appetite for the signature misto mare with its abundance of shrimp, mussels, scallops and crab simmered in a spicy tomato sauce atop tender linguine. Angel hair pasta is ideal for soaking up the lemon and caper sauce served with chicken piccata. Consider, too, the roasted rosemary chicken and oven-roasted vegetables. While the wine selection is limited there is a decent array. As for dessert, regulars make sure it's the ricotta-filled cannoli.
