Aromas of roasting pine nuts, pesto sauces, and baking lasagna fill the air as chefs at Ferrari’s Little Italy and Bakery craft traditional Italian fare according to the owners' family recipes. They sprinkle the signature insalata Ferrari with cranberries, pine nuts, and gorgonzola cheese and top the pollo basilico's roasted chicken with rigatoni, sun-dried tomatoes, and pesto cream sauce. Additionally, a pair of bakers slides around 150 loaves of fresh focaccia bread into their ovens each day, yielding slices topped with three colors of bell peppers, spinach, and gorgonzola cheese. These appear in glass bakery cases alongside pastries and artisan gelato from local dessert makers Madisono’s Gelato and Sorbet.

Inside Ferrari's multiple dining areas, gas fireplaces flicker among exposed-brick walls, and family photos help create a homey feel. On the outdoor patio, fragrant wisteria vines climb a wooden pergola, and a picturesque fountain quietly babbles recommendations from the wine list.

Artrageous's chef Teri Scheff has award-winning backgrounds in both ceramic sculpture and the culinary arts, using her dual talents to mold, chisel, and hew only the most scrumptious, statuesque sweets. Snag cute custom cupcakes ($0.65––$3.50 each) topped with icing poodles, ladybugs, or sunflowers to add character to bare cupcake trees. Or choreograph flavors such as chocolate turtle, opera cream, and peanut-butter cup into numeric arrangements to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or improved credit score. Rich tortes such as the apricot- and raspberry-filled amaretto stone sour refine blasé dinner parties in petite 6-inch ($20) and buff 8-inch ($37) varieties, and the ganache-covered chocolate-mousse bomb makes a perfect visual aid for schooling young CIA agents in the art of defusing an explosive with your mouth.

Haute Chocolate's family of chocolatiers pours more than three decades of chocolate wizardry into each sweet confection. Baked from scratch daily in the aromatic on-site kitchen, Lisa's double-chocolate-chip fudge brownies send sweet teeth down an ooey gooey road of cacao-laden decadence. Chocolate devotees can opt to dot the rich squares in nuts or sink cuisine crushers into the simplicity of pure fudge brownies. Unlike a bouquet of freshly steamed broccoli florets, Lisa's fresh-from-the-oven brownies make a delectable gift for any occasion.

Setting up shop in a formerly run-down launderette, Lavomatic Cafe provides an opportunity to dine on hearty fare without attracting uncomfortable leers from surrounding shirt-folders. Charming exposed pipes and soft tones accentuate Lavomatic’s décor, which creates a perfect setting for sampling the establishment’s well-stocked wine bar. The menu offers a modest yet satisfying selection of comforting classics with a twist, like when grandma gets tipsy and mixes acids with bases. Start with small bites such as chicken lollipops with honey mustard, bourbon barbecue sauce, and spicy garlic sauce ($8.95) or tater tots with truffle, chive, bacon, and cheddar ($7.49). Warm up with tomato bisque and grilled cheese ($7.49) or a fish sandwich with fennel apple straw on rye ($11.49). Refresh the palate with a fusion of flavors thanks to the meatloaf cupcake with country green beans and mashed potatoes ($12.95) or a pork chop with mushroom hash and red-wine caramel ($18.95). Sharable sides such as cornbread ($3.25) and mac 'n' cheese ($6.95) are also available.

Wake up with dishes from Giminetti's breakfast menu. Fork through a fluffy stack of syrup-drenched pancakes ($3.50 for stack of three) or opt for a cheesy omelette ($4) with melted sharp cheddar. Brownies ($2), white-chocolate macadamia-nut cookies ($0.75), and monstrous Danishes ($1.50) tempt sweet teeth. For midday meals, try the vedgewich ($5.50), an array of tempting veggies (grilled onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers) and savory provolone plopped between slices of multigrain rustica and slathered with a liberal dose of horseradish mayo. Subs, hoagies, burgers, and paninis appease meatier palates.
