Scugnizzi in Arlington (formerly Buona Vita Restaurant)

Same location, same owners but completely new menu, fairly extensive, with everything from Salads to Apps, Pasta, Sandwiches and Neapolitan Pizzas everything very reasonable priced. Nice interior with good furniture. Armed with a Groupon I went for lunch today and had the Bolognese, here served with Fettuccine and sprinkled with some Parmesan. Didn't look to be a big portion but it was deceiving, couldn't finish. It was served with a couple of slices of warm bread. The pasta was REALLY al dente but the sauce was delicious! A bit tart from the tomatoes, meaty from pork and beef and there was some fresh basil mixed in just before serving. Water was nice and cold and you get a bottle left on the table and that's a touch that I really like.
Where does the funny name come from? It's an Italian term meaning 'street kids', it's used to describe Neapolitan kids.
