Owners Pierluigi Palazzo and Rossella Tedesco named their restaurant after their favorite treat (soon to be yours as well). A specialty of the area around Bologna, gnocchi fritti are fried, puffy pockets of dough served piping hot with a plate of thinly sliced prosciutto, salami and capocollo. Wrap the meat around the gnocco, stuff it inside, or eat it separately. At $8.50, the price is right, too. Main courses include the usual assortment of pastas and secondi, but it’s the fried gnocchi and the giant garden space that will keep you coming back.
