Scugnizzi, which opened earlier this month in the former Buona Vita space in Arlington Center, has an extensive menu and reasonable prices. The pasta Bolognese is made with fettuccine, and Ferrari328 says the sauce is very good: “A bit tart from the tomatoes, meaty from pork and beef, and there was some fresh basil mixed in just before serving.” Servings are bigger than they look—what appeared to be a small bowl of pasta proved too much for Ferrari328 to finish.
