Bona Cucina Restaurant Review

: Keep it simple at Bona Cucina and you’ll enjoy a meal of Southern Italian-style fare, including red sauce with meatballs, garlicky mussels in red or white sauce and a veal saltimbocca that is tangy with fresh prosciutto and fragrant with sage. Some of the dishes are hit or miss---white sauces tend towards the oily side, and veal Parmigiana can suffer from overzealous frying. But the service is friendly, portions large and the red sauce is dependable. Order the cioppino, served in an enormous enamel Dutch oven when it's offered. The place could use a fluffing up, but the die-hard regulars don’t seem to notice.
