Our Review

This subdued Bolognese dining room is run by the Sassi family -- Giampaolo Sassi manages the house while his wife, Silvia Marani, creates the menu. They abide by slow food principles, supporting artisanal producers and using mostly seasonal products. Preparations are straightforward. The pasta is all homemade, including the green spinach noodles used in the classic lasagne verdi alla Bolognese. There's also tagliatelle al ragu Bolognese and a wonderfully earthy tortelloni with porcinis. A broad array of Italian wines complement the dishes. Marani's desserts are worth the calories: her panna cotta drizzled with homemade caramel is top-notch.
