THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pallino Pastaria Restaurant Review: All the noodles are spaghetti here, but mamma mia, the sauces! Were partial to the one rich with Fontina, Parmesan and Gorgonzola cheeses; Modena sporting bacon and peas in a garlicky white wine, shallot and cream sauce; the pungent Puttanesca shot through with olives, capers, hot peppers, tomatoes, anchovies and garlic; and the savory Salsicce, a tomato sauce flavored with sausage, peppers, fennel and red wine. Pair your pasta with a salad mixing greens, red grapes, dried cranberries, almonds and Gorgonzola, or go the soup-and-panini route. Everything is fresh, high-quality, and fast. Youll be inclined to linger, however, in these comfortable cafés, sipping Italian wines available by the glass and wishing you were on the Via Veneto. And did we mention that the ambience is absolutely exquisite for such a quick and inexpensive eatery? Marble countertops, discrete lighting, gleaming dark wood, rustic iron accents and slate floors.
