Little Mama’s Italian
Little Mama’s makes you feel like you’ve traveled back in time to a classy New England Italian joint in the 1950s. Except they have something that Cape Cod probably didn’t in 1958: a mozzarella bar. Not only does Little Mama’s make fresh pasta, but they have made-to-order cheese, too. It’s an unwritten rule that you have to order both, but the latter comes with your choice of accompaniments like goat cheese-and-mascarpone-stuffed peppadew peppers or marinated artichoke hearts. You should also get a classic red-sauce plate, which Little Mama’s excels at, like spaghetti and meatballs, ravioli, lasagna, or the spicy ziti al telefono, with tomato, basil, calabrian chilis, and that luscious mozzarella.
