I feel compelled to share some information about one of the best little Italian restaurants. It is called Pasta And... (located on Atlantic Blvd and Banks Rd, just west of Lions).
My girlfriend and I went there and were amazed at how good the food was. All the pasta and sauces are freshly made and perfected, so don't ask them to keep this or that out. The baked lumache was unbelievable. I didn't order it, but I kept stealing bites from my girlfriends plate. The tiramisu for dessert was excellent also, but after gorging on the pasta there wasn't much room left.
I suggest reservations. The place is very small (actually a little hole in the wall). I am pretty sure it is family run and it is outstanding!
