The Garganelli with butternut squash pasta dish is one of the the best things I've eaten this year. I had it three times since discovering this place and still crave it. I do need to request some parmeggiano as they don't think to offer it, and it really sends the dish into deliciousness overdrive.

I also love their Gangolo cocktail. It has vodka, St. Germain, muddled strawberries, and mint. I could drink these til the cows come home.

I love the feel of this place- lacquered wood bench tables. It's comfortable, relaxed with a smidge of posh.

The pizzas are ok, not fantastic. I like to share a pizza as an appetizer, but I will not share the Garganelli!

I enjoy this more casual outpost over the original Piccolo Venice. Piccolo Venice I had a good but uneven meal, and while the atmosphere is lovely, the food wasn't quite as good as some other Italian restaurants in the same price range.
