We loved going to Il Mulino, but then the nice couple sold the place and disappeared. They've recently opened Carisma. The menu is the way I remembered it. Our server told us it's pretty much the exact same kitchen staff and wait staff as before. This suits me fine because we were looking for the same simple comfort food. We had the mushroom salad, bufala mozzarella, gnocchi, lobster risotto and we split an apple strudel to finish. Everything was the same as I remembered, very good. My only minor complaint is that apon entering the room is very dark, it was fine once we were seated. With a couple glasses of wine, tax and tip it was $80pp. I still have to try Scarpetta to see how it compares.
