Can't believe I haven't posted about this place before. Went there last night for the first time in a year or so. It's in East Arlington, in the same block as the Capitol Theater. Just a little hole in the wall (no atmosphere, Shaebones! ;-> ), but they make their own pasta and sauces, the cannolis are filled to order, and the sandwiches are super-fresh and on Iggy's bread. The ravioli special of the day is always worth trying. Yesterday it was delicious: asparagus and mushroom rav with artichokes, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes in a tomato cream sauce. I asked for, and got, Iggy's rosemary foccaccia on the side. All for $7.95! You can also get fresh pasta, frozen sauce, and prepared dishes to go.

BTW, my route thereafter took me past a building on Broadway with a sign that said "Olive Branch Mediterranean Cuisine" or some such. Does anybody have any dope on this place?

I'm far from finished exploring E. Arlington. There's a lot going on there, in a quiet sort of way.
