Traditional Italian cuisine populates the menu at La Italiana, a family-run eatery known for pasta dishes, seafood dinners, and grilled signature steaks. Guests can commence tour-de-chews with starters of fried cheese ravioli or 24 buffalo wings, hand-plucked from the back of an appetizer tree. Chefs douse the sautéed chicken florentine in a delectable spinach cream sauce, and they fry-breaded eggplant slices before stuffing them with seasoned ricotta, parmesan, and ham to create eggplant rollatinis. The grill stays piping for 14-ounce rib-eye steaks and seafood, including Prince Edward mussels drenched in garlic-white-wine sauce. An entourage of soup or salad, a choice of pasta or baked potato, and freshly baked bread chaperone each entree to its rightful owner. Duos can tipple a choice of domestic and imported bottled beer or glasses of wine, which pair with Italian edibles as naturally as a right glove pairs with Aaron Burr’s face.
