Mama Carolla’s Old Italian Restaurant


Don’t expect culinary innovation or spot-on authentic Italian, but do visit if you want heaping plates of pasta and charm galore. The setting, a 1920s villa with a cozy bar, intimate dining rooms, low lighting, and a fireplace, makes this a popular date spot. The same goes for the accessible menu, with dishes like veal medallions smothered in Gorgonzola sauce and pesto-covered ravioli. Dinner Tues.–Sat.
