Gasper’s wait staff ferries trays of authentic Italian pizzas, pastas, and entrees through the eatery’s red-accented confines, brightened by a flower-festooned mantelpiece. Vegetarian staples such as eggplant parmesan and margherita pizza complement meat and fish dishes such as pork-loin scallopini and farfalle pasta with shrimp, providing patrons with enough protein to lift a car made of pepperoni. More than 30 vintages from the wine list pour forth at the house bar, backlit by a TV glowing with sports coverage.
