I'm looking for suggestions for a good italian restaurant not too far from New Haven - i know New Haven pretty well, but rarely go out for Italian (I'm typically a member of the "don't go out to eat something that you can cook yourself" school of thought!) What do people recommend? Last time I think I went to L'Orcio which I enjoyed quite a bit - but there are all these places in wooster square (no, i'm not looking for pizza) like Adriana's and Tre Scallini - what do people think?
Also, I had an underwhelming experience at Porto Fino on State Street (state and bishop i think) when they first opened and haven't been back - am i missing out?
And what about Italian (or any other, come to think of it) recommendations near New Haven - let's say a 15 mile radius or something like that?
Thanks so much!
