Fiorella is the kind of place that appreciates our urge to eat carbs every day of the week. Their handmade pastas come in massive shareable portions as large as Big Foot’s shoe size, so lean on the waiters to recommend how many dishes you should order (we usually go with four). Their bar (which is the only place you can sit inside) is the perfect location to watch the team prepare starters like their long strips of beef carpaccio—we’d carry it around with us all day so we could eat it on the go like a briny Fruit by the Foot. We also can’t get enough of their chicory salad which has a honey-like sweetness from the pears and comes with a creamy gorgonzola sauce. But it’s really the pasta that keeps us coming back. They have seven pasta dishes that range from a lemony, lobster-stuffed conchiglie to pumpernickel pappardelle with duck ragu that has sugary huckleberries sprinkled throughout. Both of those make for great dishes to try on their covered heated patio on cold nights.
