Lunch features traditional Italian appetizers such as baked clams, caprese salad and minestrone. There are creamy frittatas (such as spinach, cherry tomato and feta) and personal-size pizzas. The truffle pie comes with arugula, prosciutto, truffle oil and shaved Parmesan. Each pie is brought to your table on a hot wooden platter to keep it oven fresh. Entrées include penne in rich vodka sauce and a tender pork chop oreganata. For dessert, try the rainbow-cookie cake, inspired by Italian seven-layer cookies, or the sweet and buttery crème brûlée.
