PizzAroma’s expert pie slingers have combined special sauces and dough into a toothsome menu for almost half a century.

PizzAroma also serves up pastas, such as the shrimp scampi, which populates a garlicky butter ocean with plump crustaceans, waves of cheese, and lactose-tolerant pirates ($8.99).

Raffi's Restaurant has perfected its menu of classic Italian dishes since its founding in 1989. Dinners kick off with appetizers such as crab cakes in creamy pesto sauce and toasted ravioli. Entrees arrive next, pleasing palates with bites of spicy shrimp diablo, rigatoni in a rich bacon, pea, and cheese carbonara sauce, and chicken saltimbocca topped with capers, mushrooms, and thin slices of egg, cheese, and bacon.

Wines complement each dish, as do cocktails from the Palm Lounge, Raffi's full-service bar. During warmer months, patrons can sample the Palm Lounge's stock of fine cigars on an outdoor patio that overlooks a bubbling fountain. There, they can blow smoke at their least favorite Internet memes while hooked up to the restaurant's complimentary WiFi.
