There were also two pasta dishes at the table. The canneloni Bolognese alla Corinna ($16.95) was an unusual version, the al dente sheets of pasta not filled with ricotta but rather with the above meatball ingredients, topped with the meat sauce of its name and a bit of béchamel cheese sauce. Interesting. Bucatini al pomodoro ($13.95) was a pile of fresh thick strands of pasta with a San Marzano marinara sauce. Simple and delicious.

We all were full, so we didn't have any of the nearly dozen desserts ($6.95). Labeled "homemade," many aren't, at least not in their "home" kitchen here. The spumoni cassatta, however, they do commendably concoct themselves with gelati and candied fruit. Maybe next time.
