An excellent, not-fancy place to eat some pasta in the Marina. Don’t come for fresh ramps and sage-ricotta-truffle dust, but do come for lots of well-cooked carbs in delicious sauces, plus an ambience that feels like home. This is where we go when we need a pasta hug. The carbonara is never a bad move.
