Mamma Luisa

Mamma Luisa checks a lot of boxes on the cute, little Italian restaurant bingo card: there are old photos everywhere, knick-knacks lining the walls, and the intoxicating smell of sauce that’s been simmering on the stove long before you got up this morning. This is a great spot for a quiet romantic night out, where you should eat ravioli, spaghetti and clams, and tonno puttanesca, while always saving room for the dessert tray. They have a rotating selection of Italian classics—we love the pistachio cake, but if that’s not available, go with the tiramisu or tartufo. And if you went to Rome once and now can’t end a meal without an espresso, this is the place to order one.
