Chefs infuse robust flavors into hand-tossed pizza, piquant pasta, and other traditional Italian entrees on The Grotto Restaurant’s extensive lunch and dinner menus. In the pomodoro pasta fini pasta splashes in a sea of freshly diced tomatoes, feta cheese, and fragrant basil alongside freshly baked bread ($13.99). The Sonny's signature, gourmet crab-cakes dish soaks jumbo lumps of white crab meat in a lagoon of cream sherry sauce ($24.99). The culinary crew also hand-tosses 12-inch pizzas ($11.99–$12.99) topped with sausage, feta cheese, mushrooms, and other savories to round off the menu's savory selection and incite envy in neglected baseballs.
Libras's proprietor, Diana DiBridge Robosky, serves up a satisfying menu of breakfasts, salads, and sandwiches. Red-potato hash, cheese, and meat crown the cheesy omelet bowl ($6), and the grilled veggie sandwich on ciabatta ($8) holds more produce than Peter Rabbit's crisper drawer. Traditional caesar salad comes topped with house-made garlic croutons and fresh ground pepper ($5), and florets and pasta mingle in the broccoli-tortellini salad ($6).

Gigi and her team of expert bakers garner palate popularity with each customizable batch of scrumptious sugar cookies made for any special occasion.
