Little Azio’s imbues its casual-dining menu with generous pasta portions and brick-oven pizza topped with made-from-scratch sauce. Crunchy salads kick-start each meal with romaine lettuce and caesar dressing or tomato, olives, cucumbers, and mozzarella on a bed of greens. Dough disks silently hover below noses, beaming up the savory aromas of the margherita pizza’s roma tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil, or the meat lover’s array of sausage, ham, pepperoni, meatballs, and Protein Lovers Anonymous membership cards. Pasta options include turkey ragu, made with turkey sausage and tomato sauce, or the wild-mushroom marsala, a fusion of marsala-wine sauce and cage-free mushrooms. Thick, malty glugs of domestic brews such as Sam Adams and Bud Light or savory sips of house wine bathe palates in between saucy bites.
