In a city with more Italian restaurants than Brady touchdown passes, La Morra might be the most underrated of them all. There’s a unique cicchetti menu with Italian-style tapas - think fried, salty things like anchovies in sage leaves, which pair perfectly with negronis. Every pasta here is excellent, though the bolognese may be one of the best in the city. For an affordable date night, don’t miss the four-course tasting menu for only $40 (with optional wine pairing for $20).
