Help please. Father-in-Law, Italian American in town and wants to eat tonight in the North End. He wants a variety of pasta dishes to choose from. We'll also be dining with one vegetarian. Doesn't have to be fancy/top-of-the-line restaurant but has to be good, authentic. He's particularly fond of gnocchi.
Just to know, I'm familiar with this thread: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/448599
In fact, last night we ate at Maurizio's based on the rating in this thread (wow, and dinner was great!) but in this case I'm asking not just for a good restaurant but a good restaurant known for delicious pasta dishes.
Anybody have specific recommendations?
