Open since 1993, Tutto Italiano is located on the edge of a busy streetóCongress Parkwayóbut serves up plenty of quiet neighborhood charm once you're inside. A considerable wine list features more than 15 by-the-glass options, half-bottles and a number of reasonably priced bottles. The extensive Italian lunch and dinner menu includes food favorites like calamari (spicy or tender, take your pick), marinated peppers, three-cheese ravioli and gnocchi.
Tutto Italiano offers a number of other creative cuisine picks, too. The fettuccine gamberoni, a mix of shrimp, sundried tomatoes and spinach served in a tomato-basil sauce, and the linguine marechiaro, mussels, clams and calamari steamed in a tomato broth and garnished with garlic bread, are two standouts.
This isn't the place to go if you're looking to eat light; but if you're in the market for a rich, indulgent Italian meal, you're in luck.
