This causal Italian spot is in the old Nicoletta Italian Kitchen space, and has greatly improved on the Italian food you can get. There’s an all-day Happy Hour in the bar area during the week, where you can get $7 martinis. If that’s not reason enough to stop by (it is for us), the taglioni neri, a soft squid ink noodle in a nice spicy sauce, and the cheesy, comforting gramigna are. You won’t find spaghetti and meatballs or chicken parm on this menu—Cucina Morini specializes in southern Italian dishes that include lots of seafood, like the polpo that has a smoky char. Slide into a cozy nook seat with your favorite dinner date as the neo-soul soundtrack and delicious pasta soothe you after a long day.
