Specializing in flavor-drenched pastas and hearty subs, Calabria proffers a multifarious menu of authentic Italian eats. Calabria’s seasoned pasta herders use high-quality ingredients to shepherd flocks of ravioli and homemade meatballs into awaiting mouth pens ($8.50), while plump pillows of gnocchi accompanied by meatballs ($9.50) or chicken parmigiana or sausage ($10.50 each) smother daydreaming taste buds with potent palatability. Fresh-baked bread supplied from area bakeries ensconces succulent subs such as the Calabrese lady packed with a chicken cutlet, fresh mozzarella, and roasted red peppers ($8.95). Top off a chicken-salad sandwich ($7.25) with a pastry-swaddled cannoli ($1.25), and drink in the fresh air of an al fresco dining experience at one of Calabria’s sun-drenched outdoor tables.
